The OV40A from OmniVision Technologies is a 40 MegaPixel CMOS Digital Image Sensor with a pixel size of 1.008 µm. Built on OmniVision’s PureCelPlus stacked die technology, it has an active array size of 7360 x 5504 µm and offers an image transfer rate of 30 frames per second (fps). The image sensor provides leading-edge still image captures, and exceptional 1080 P video recordings at 240 fps. It can consistently capture the best quality images while enabling fast mode switching and multi-camera synchronization. The image sensor requires a DC supply of 1.8 V and supports the standard serial SCCB interface.
The OV40A features automatic black level calibration (ABLC) and supports horizontal and vertical subsampling, 10-bit HDR RGB RAW output, and dynamic DCP cancellation. It has a programmable I/O drive capability and can be integrated with a 4-lane MIPI Tx interface which has a speed of up to 3 Gbps/lane. This sensor also offers a 2 and 3 exposure staggered HDR timing option, providing smartphone designers with maximum flexibility to select the best HDRs method for a given scene. It is ideal for smartphones, PC multimedia, and video conferencing applications.
