Color CMOS 5-megapixel (2592x1944) Image Sensor With OmniBSI-2™ Technology

The OV5693 is OmniVision's highest performance 1/4-inch, 5-megapixel image sensor, delivering DSC-quality imaging and low-light performance as well as full 1080p high-definition video recording at 30 frames per second (fps). Using OmniVision's proprietary 1.4-micron OmniBSI-2™ pixel architecture, the OV5693 provides best-in-class low-light performance and image quality in a slim camera module. This makes the OV5693 an ideal camera solution for slim flagship smartphones and tablets, providing exceptional 5-megapixel "selfie" images and high-quality 1080p video.

Leveraging OmniVision's second-generation industry-leading backside illumination pixel technology, the OV5693 offers full resolution 5-megapixel images at 30 fps, an integrated scaler, and 2x2 binning functionality with re-sampling filter. The scaler enables electronic image stabilization, while maintaining full field-of-view in both 720p and 1080p HD video modes. The 2x2 binning functionality, which features a post-binning re-sampling filter, further increases the sensor's sensitivity, while minimizing spatial artifacts and removing image artifacts around edges to produce crisp, clean color images.

The sensor features a high-speed 2-lane MIPI interface running up to 900 Mbps per lane and fits into an industry standard module size of 8.5 x 8.5 mm with a z-height of 4.2 mm for an autofocus module.
