Color CMOS 4-megapixel (2688x1520) Image Sensor with OmniBSI-2™ Technology

OmniVision's OV4682 is a 4-megapixel RGB infrared (IR) single sensor that captures high-resolution images and video as well as IR information. Its dual RGB and IR capabilities allow it to bring a host of additional features to mobile and machine vision applications, including gesture sensing, depth analysis, iris detection and eye tracking. By combining two capabilities into a single sensor, the OV4682 reduces the total cost for the system while also reducing the space required for multiple sensors.

The sensor's 2-micron OmniBSI-2™ pixel delivers excellent signal-to-noise ratio and IR sensitivity, and offers best-in-class low-light sensitivity with a 40 percent increase in sensitivity compared to the 1.75-micron OmniBSI-2 pixel. The OV4682's unique architecture and pixel optimization bring not only the best IR performance but also best-in-class image quality. Additionally, the sensor reduces system-level power consumption by optimizing RGB and IR timing.

The OV4682 records full-resolution 4-megapixel video in a native 16:9 format at 90 frames per second (fps), with a quarter of the pixels dedicated to capturing IR. The 1/3-inch sensor can also record 1080p high definition (HD) video at 120 fps with electronic image stabilization (EIS), or 720p HD at 180 fps.

The OV4682 features a high-speed 4-lane MIPI serial output interface to facilitate the required high data transfer rate. It fits into an 8.5 x 8.5 mm module with a z-height of less than 6 mm.
