Color CMOS 16-megapixel (4672x3504) PureCel®-S Image Sensor

OmniVision's high performance OV16880 is a 1/3.06-inch 16-megapixel image sensor built on OmniVision's PureCel®Plus-S stacked die technology. Utilizing an advanced 1-micron pixel, the sensor brings ultra-high resolution image and video capture, as well as advanced features such as phase detection autofocus (PDAF), to slim smartphones and tablets.

OmniVision's PureCel®Plus-S sensors utilize buried color filter array (BCFA) and deep trench isolation (DTI) technology, which dramatically reduces pixel crosstalk and improves signal-to-noise ratio to produce superior images and video. Additionally, this technology enables a slimmer module design by allowing larger chief ray angle (CRA) lenses without degradation of image quality.

The OV16880 PureCel®Plus-S image sensor is capable of capturing 16-megapixel (4672 x 3504 pixels) images at 30 frames per second (fps), thus allowing burst photography and zero shutter lag at full resolution. Additionally, the sensor is capable of capturing 4K video at 30 fps, 1080p video at 90 fps, and 720p video at 120 fps.

The sensor can fit into an 8.5 x 8.5 mm module with a z-height less than 5 mm. The OV16880 is currently in mass production.
