OH0TA OVMed medical image sensor comes with a package size of 0.55mm x 0.55mm, and features a 1.0 micron pixel and a 1/31” optical format. Device also quadruples the RGB image resolution to 400×400, or 160 K Pixels, at 30 frames per second, while reducing the power consumption by 20% to 20mW. This allows designers to add ultra-compact visualization to single-use and reusable endoscopes, as well as catheters and guidewires, with a small outer diameter of 1-2mm. Alternatively, this sensor’s uniquely small size gives medical device OEMs the flexibility to create a larger-diameter scope with a larger working channel. Device’s increased resolution allows higher quality color images to be captured from within the body’s smallest organs, enabling medical devices to reach deeper into the body for procedures such as neuro, ophthalmic, ENT, cardiac, spinal, urology, gynecology and arthroscopy, as well as dental and veterinary diagnosis and surgery. Additionally, the sensor’s lower power consumption reduces ‘chip on tip’ camera heat for greater patient comfort and longer procedure durations, while also reducing noise for crisper images.
