OmniVision Technologies Inc. has introduced the 1.3MP OV10642 and the WVGA OV10625 as the latest additions to its line-up of OmniHDR automotive high dynamic range (HDR) sensors. According to the company, the devices feature top-level sensitivity and HDR performance in their respective market segments.

The sensors use a special red-clear filter that is required for many forward-looking automotive applications. These benefits enable a host of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), including lane departure warning, blind spot detection and traffic signal detection, among others.

The 1.3MP OV10642 image sensor uses OmniBSI technology to deliver industry leading sensitivity and extended dynamic range in a simple, low-power and cost effective system, the company stated. The 1/2.6in OV10642 supports an active array of 1280 x 1080 pixels and fits into a compact 7.4 x 7.2mm package.

The 1/3.2in, WVGA OV10625 delivers HDR performance of up to 120dB and best-in-class low-light sensitivity of 15V/Lux-sec, ensuring accurate scene reproduction in a range of driving conditions, added OmniVision. The OV10625 supports digital RAW data output and fits into one of the industry's most compact and efficient 7.3 x 7.8mm package, continued the company.

Both sensors are sampling and are expected to enter volume production in 4Q14.
