OmniVision OV10820

OmniVision Technologies Inc. has introduced what it boasts as a complete 10.5MP camera solution with an RGB Clear (RGBC) colour filter that delivers exceptional low-light performance. The camera solution is composed of a native 16:9 OV10820 sensor that offers 4K2K and 1080p full high definition (FHD) video, and a OV660 companion chip that converts the RGBC data into standard RGB Bayer data geared for next-generation smartphones and tablets.

The 1/2.6in OV10820 utilises a 1.4µ OmniBSI-2 pixel architecture with a RGBC colour filter pattern to deliver exceptional low-light sensitivity, enabling high quality video recording in difficult lighting conditions. It records full-resolution 10.5MP video at 30fps, and supports 4K2K (3840 x 2160 pixels) at 30fps and 1080p FHD video at 60fps while maintaining full field of view (FOV) with binning functionality for RAW output. The OV10820 fits in a camera module form factor of 9.5 x 9.5 x 6.4mm, which includes auto focus functionality.

The OV660 converts OmniVision's RGBC RAW data into industry standard RGB Bayer RAW data. The OV660 supports a primary RGBC camera sensor of up to 20-megapixel in resolution and a secondary RGBC front-facing camera sensor. The OV660 eliminates the need for manufacturers and backend processors to modify their existing standard Bayer imaging pipeline and algorithms. The OV660 is available in a 4 x 4 mm WLCSP package.

The OV10820 features a high-speed 4-lane MIPI output interface to support the required high data transfer rate. The OV660 features two MIPI input ports and one MIPI output port. Both devices are currently shipping in volume production.
