The OX01E10 from OmniVision Technologies is a 1.3 Megapixel CMOS HDR Image Sensor. The sensor is built on the PureCel Plus pixel architecture, renowned for its low-light sensitivity and providing good SNR performance. It provides two on-screen display overlay layers for driver guidelines, as well as distortion correction to straighten any curved edges from lenses with a wide viewing angle. This SoC comes in a 1/4-inch optical format and provides a 1340 x 1020 array size at 30 fps. It provides the automotive industry’s best imaging performance for entry-level rearview cameras (RVC) across a wide range of challenging lighting conditions, along with the most compact form factor and lowest power consumption.
The device integrates a 3-micron image sensor and an advanced image signal processor (ISP), enabling designers to achieve a small form factor with excellent low-light performance, ultra-low power, and a reduced cost while improving reliability by using only one printed circuit board (PCB). This AEC-Q100 Grade 2 certified SoC enables output flexibility with both 2-lane MIPI and 10-bit DVP interfaces.
This SoC employs OmniVision’s dual conversion gain technology to achieve an HDR of 120 dB with only two captures. Its integrated ISP that enables superior image quality with several advanced features, such as lens chromatic aberration correction, and advanced noise reduction and local tone mapping.
The OX01E10 imaging device doesn’t require a metal heat sink, allowing plastic camera module bodies to reduce costs. With its compact package size, it enables smaller cameras that can fit in tighter spaces. Additionally, by integrating both the sensor and ISP into a single chip, designers can save on both cost and space by eliminating the second PCB in typical two-chip implementations.
