Commenting Aaron Chiang, senior technical marketing manager at OmniVision said, “More and more mobile consumer electronics are designed to include front-facing cameras for video calls. These cameras are typically required to have exceptional image quality and low-light performance, and to fit into extremely compact spaces. The OVM7675 provides manufacturers of next-generation smartphones, tablets and notebooks a drop-in solution tailored to these stringent requirements.”
The OVM7675 is built on OmniVision’s powerful OmniPixel3-HS technology. This delivers low-light sensitivity of 1800 mV/(Lux-sec), making it suitable for operating in challenging lighting conditions. The OVM7675 delivers high quality VGA video at 30 frames per second, and full-frame sub-sampled or windowed 8-bit images in a wide range of formats. It can be controlled through the Serial Camera Control Bus (SCCB) interface.
The OVM7675 CameraCubeChip is currently sampling and is expected to enter volume production in the fourth quarter of 2012.
