Color CMOS 1.3-megapixel (1280x1080) High Dynamic Range (HDR) High Definition Image Sensor

The OV10640 is the automotive industry's first image sensor to utilize backside illumination technology, enabling industry-leading sensitivity and high dynamic range (HDR) up to 120 dB in the smallest possible automotive-grade package. The OV10640 is well suited for a broad range of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), including: 360-degree surround view, rear view, machine vision, blind spot detection, and lane departure warning.

The sensor's 4.2-micron OmniBSI™ pixel is capable of recording highly detailed full-resolution 1.3-megapixel images and video at 60 frames per second (fps). The sensor uses OmniVision's unique split pixel HDR technology, in which the scene information is sampled simultaneously rather than sequentially, minimizing motion artifacts and delivering superior image quality in RAW output in the most demanding and difficult lighting conditions.

The OV10640 contains a well-defined feature set to fulfill Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) according to ISO26262. The sensor fits into a compact chip-scale package (CSP), and is expected to complete AEC-Q100 Grade-2 qualifications.
