Digital imaging solutions developer OmniVision Technologies rolls out the OVM7695, a video graphics array (VGA) “CameraCubeChip” that has a module size of 2.4 x 2.4 x 2.3 millimeters thereby providing a front-facing camera solution requiring minimal assembly and tuning effort, making it ideal for mobile device manufacturers, the company says.
“Front-facing cameras have quickly become a defining feature in mobile devices” and “as these devices continue down the path of miniaturization, manufacturers are tasked with providing a better video recording experience within tighter space constraints,” said Aaron Chiang, OmniVision’s senior technical marketing manager. “Using the OmniBSI+ pixel architecture, the OVM7695 delivers high-quality video that consumers have come to expect, in a remarkably thin form factor,” he said.
The OVM7695 is built on an optimized 1.75-micron OmniBSI+ pixel design, offering improved sensitivity and image reproduction to deliver optimal performance in difficult conditions. It captures VGA video at 30 frames per second and provides full-frame, sub-sampled and cropped images in various formats through the serial camera control bus (SCCB) interface.
