Color CMOS 8-megapixel (3264x2448) Image Sensor with OmniBSI-2™ Technology

OmniVision's OV8865 is a low-power high-performance 8-megapixel camera solution for next-generation smartphones and tablets. Utilizing an improved 1.4-micron OmniBSI-2™ pixel, the OV8865 delivers best-in-class pixel performance in a smaller, more power efficient package compared to the previous generation OV8835 sensor.

The OV8865 offers a number of performance improvements including a five percent improvement in dynamic range and a 50 percent reduction in dark current, resulting in superior high- and low-light images. Furthermore, the OV8865 consumes considerably less power than the OV8835, achieving the sub 200 mW benchmark preferred by high-end mobile device manufacturers.

The 1/3.2-inch OV8865 supports an active array of 3264 x 2448 (8-megapixels) operating at 30 frames per second (fps) for high-speed photography. The sensor is also capable of capturing 1080p high-definition (HD) video at 30 fps or 720p at 60 fps.

The OV8865 fits into an industry standard 8.5 x 8.5 x 5 mm package.
