Color CMOS UXGA (1600x1200) Image Sensor with OmniPixel3-HS Technology

The OV2686 (SoC) is a low-power 2-megapixel CameraChip™ sensor for feature phones and front-facing camera applications in smartphones and tablets. The 1/5-inch sensor leverages a 1.75-micron OmniPixel3-HS™ pixel to deliver high quality 2-megapixel images and video at 15 frames per second (fps). The sensor's high sensitivity and low dark current deliver exceptional image and video quality, even in low-light conditions.

he OV2686 is a cost-effective sensor with a smaller footprint and smaller die size. Compared to previous generations, the OV2686 offers improved image quality with the latest OmniPixel3-HS pixel architecture. Using OmniVision's proprietary sensor technology, the sensor reduces or eliminates common lighting and electrical sources of image contamination, such as fixed pattern noise, smearing, etc., to produce a clean, stable, color image.
