Low-power 2MP image sensor serves security surveillance cameras
EP&T MagazineElectronics Optoelectronics image sensors
OMNIVISION OS02N 2-megapixel (MP) frontside illumination (FSI) image sensor with optimized defective pixel correction (DPC) algorithm delivers higher sensitivity, improved performance and increased reliability for IP and HD analog security cameras, including professional surveillance and outdoor home security cameras. Device supports always-on with its low-power capability. Product features a 2.5-micron pixel based on firm’s OmniPixel 3-HS technology. Solution uses FSI technology for true-to-life colour reproduction in both bright and dark conditions. Optimized DPC algorithm improves sensor quality and reliability above and beyond standard devices by providing real-time correction of defective pixels that can result throughout the sensor’s life cycle, especially in harsh operating conditions. The OS02N features 1920×1080 resolution at 30 frames per second (FPS).
