Color CMOS 1080p (1920x1080) HD PureCel® Image Sensor

OmniVision's OV2740 PureCel® is an ultra-low power, full high-definition (FHD) image sensor for front-facing camera applications in smartphones, tablets, notebooks and Ultrabooks. By consuming under 90 mW when recording 1080p HD video at 60 frames per second (fps), the OV2740 is the lowest power 1080p/60 image sensor currently on the market.

Built on a 1.4-micron pixel, the OV2740 PureCel image sensor boasts a signal-to-noise ratio of less than 50 lux, with improvements in full-well capacity (FWC) and sensitivity. The sensor records best-in-class 1080p HD video at 60 fps and 720p HD video at 90 fps, and uses staggered high dynamic range (HDR) to minimize motion artifacts to capture crisp, clear video in difficult lighting conditions.

The OV2740 is the only 1080p HD image sensor to feature light-sensing mode (LSM) and ultra-low power mode (ULPM), enabling advanced features such as motion detection or gesture control. Additionally, the sensor is stereo ready with frame synchronization to support a host of depth perception applications. The OV2740 fits into a compact 5.5 x 5.5 x 3 mm module.
