OmniVision Technologies Inc. is offering a 1Mpixel OV9715 that is fully AEC-Q100-qualified CMOS image sensor optimised for advanced driver assistance systems. It is suitable for use in 360-degree view and other stand-alone or multi camera automotive vision systems. It is currently shipping to multiple Tier-1 automotive suppliers.

"The OV9715 stands at the leading edge of functionality, enabling the most advanced multi-camera automotive applications such as 360-degree bird's eye view, blind spot detection and various lane departure warning systems," said Inayat Khajasha, senior automotive product marketing manager at OmniVision. "OmniVision's unrivalled pixel technology has put us far ahead of the competition, allowing the company to anticipate and rapidly respond to automotive market trends."

The OV9715's 1Mpixel resolution enables high performance, multi-camera automotive vision systems that use extreme wide-angle (>160 degree) lenses where distortion correction and image stitching are required. The 1/4-inch OV9715 is based on OmniVision's proprietary OmniPixel3-HS architecture, allowing it to deliver best-in-class low light performance of 3300mV/lux-sec, which enables image capture in virtually any lighting condition. The sensor also delivers full-frame 720p high-definition video at 30fps and VGA resolution video at 60fps with complete user control over image quality, formatting and output data transfer.

Image processing functions, including exposure and gain control, white balance, lens correction and defective pixel correction are incorporated into the sensor, and full frame, sub-sampled or windowed 8bit/10bit images are provided in raw RGB format via the digital video port. The OV9715 comes in a lead-free 48-pin QFP package with an operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.
