OMNIVISION announces first 200MP resolution image sensor with world’s smallest 0.61 micron pixel size for high-end smartphones

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–OMNIVISION, a leading global developer of semiconductor solutions including advanced digital imaging, analog and touch and display technology, today announced at CES 2022 the OVB0B, the world’s smallest 200 MP image sensor with a pixel size of only 0.61 µm for smartphone cameras. The OVB0B’s unique 16-cell binning provides superior video and preview quality in 12.5 MP mode, especially in low light conditions. The OVB0B is the first 200MP to offer 100% quad phase detection (QPD) technology for excellent fast autofocus performance.

“Consumers want high-resolution captures and high-quality preview and video. As a leader in image sensor technology, we have applied our PureCel®Plus-S stacked array technology to dramatically push mobile primary cameras to a new level,” said Arun Jayaseelan, Chief Marketing Officer, OMNIVISION. “With the new OVB0B, we now offer the industry’s highest resolution in a small package for high-end smartphones, as well as best-in-class low-light performance.”

The OVB0B features the industry’s first 16-cell grouping capability for 4K2K video with 16 times the sensitivity. In low-light environments, it achieves 12.5MP performance with a 2.44µm equivalent pixel size using near 4×4 pixel binning. An on-chip remosaic enables 50MP at 24 frames per second (fps) and 8k video at 30 fps with performance equivalent to 1.22µm. The OVB0B can also output 12.5MP at 30fps with 3-exposure staggered HDR sync.

“The introduction of 200MP image sensor products for smartphone cameras promises to capture stunning detail in images, meeting the needs of smartphone vendors who are actively looking to differentiate their devices with improved cameras featuring image sensors. We estimate that over 40 million image sensors with 100 MP+ resolution are expected to ship to smartphone vendors in 2022,” said Jeffrey Mathews, senior analyst at Strategy Analytics.

The OVB0B supports CPHY, DPHY and dual DOVDD (1.8 V and 1.2 V). Samples of the OVB0B are available now. Contact your OMNIVISION sales representative for more information: www.ovt.com/contact-sales.
