Digital imaging solutions developer, OmniVision Technologies, has launched its system-on-a-chip OV10630 automotive sensor.
Designed for performing sensing and vision functions concurrently in automotive machine vision applications, the sensor features a 1280x800 megapixel resolution with low-light sensitivity and color high dynamic range (HDR).
The sensor is based on 4.2 µ pixel OmniPixel3-HS architecture and allows 3.5V/lux-sec low-light sensitivity for capturing HD-quality color video in different environments. It achieves a dynamic range of over 100 dB in color and 110 dB in black-and-white. The sensor removes HDR image sensor artifacts including motion ghost artifacts. The 1280x800 pixel active array provides 720p high-definition video at 30 frames per second.
The OV10630 sensor provides color HDR video output, which is display-ready, in 18-bit combined RAW RGB output or 8- or 10-bit YUV format. It delivers HDR images even under harsh operating conditions, making it ideal for automotive applications. The sensor allows multi-camera systems to perform sensing functions such as object detection, lane departure and collision warning, panoramic and right angle views.
