The OG0VA from OmniVision is a CMOS Image Sensor with the industry's smallest pixel size of 2.2 microns. The OGOVA features OmniVision's PureCel®Plus-S stacked pixel architecture and Nyxel® NIR technology to enable optimal performance and precision along with excellent MTF for sharp, accurate images in machine vision and 3D sensing applications. This image sensor is an expansion of its backside-illuminated (BSI), global shutter (GS) sensor family that provides VGA resolution options with the best NIR performance in a global shutter device.
The OG0VA image sensor provides 640 x 480 VGA resolution at 240 frames per second (fps) and 320 x 240 QVGA resolution at 480 fps, in the industry's smallest optical format of 1/10 inches. Additionally, its low light sensitivity is excellent, with significantly lower gain than the industry's typical 3.0-micron pixel size for an improved signal-to-noise ratio.
The image sensor's high MTF enables sharper images with greater contrast and more detail, which helps to enhance machine vision decision-making processes. The OGOVA also has a high QE of 40% at 940 nm and 60% at 850 nm. This sensor can perform better in low- and no-light conditions, which allows designers to use less IR LED light and achieve lower system-level power consumption. For AR/VR headsets, this reduces heat generation, while industrial and robotics applications can use fewer IR LEDs for lower system cost, or use the same number to achieve a greater image detection range.
