The OV60A from OmniVision is a 60 Mega Pixel CMOS Image Sensor with a small pixel size of 0.612 µm. The image sensor has a 4-cell color filter array that uses near-pixel binning to deliver 15 MP images with 4x sensitivity offering 1.22 µm equivalent performance for preview and native 4K video with extra pixels for electronic image stabilization (EIS). It has a frame rate of 60 fps with an electronic image stabilization (EIS) feature. The image sensor has staggered HDR timing which enables high dynamic range video that can fit into a 1/2.8-inch optical format in either 3:4 or 16:9 aspect ratio configurations. It supports a 10-bit RGB RAW output format and can be controlled via standard serial SCCB, 4-lane MIPI D-PHY, and 2/3 trio C-PHY TX interfaces. The image sensor also has an ambient light sensor (ALS) and ultra-low-power (ULP) modes that can save battery life when paired with the phone’s artificial intelligence functions. It supports dual I/O voltages of 1.2 V and 1.8 V.
The OV60A is built on OmniVision’s PureCel Plus-S stacked die technology that has an active array size of 9152 x 6592 pixels which is 24% smaller than its previous generation. It can achieve higher quantum efficiency with better crosstalk and offers an angular response by utilizing its three on-chip phase lock loops (PLLs) and programmable I/O drivers. The sensor has a chief ray angle of 36.4° which is suitable for wide-angle imaging in compact devices such as mobile phones. This CMOS image sensor also has an integrated temperature sensor and is ideal for usage in high-end mobile phone front/rear-facing cameras.
