Color CMOS WVGA (744x520) High Dynamic Range (HDR) High Definition (HD) Image Sensor

OmniVision's OV7850 is a single-chip color CMOS camera solution designed for high performance video applications, such as dashboard and DIY rearview cameras. Featuring a 1/3.2-inch optical format, the low-power OV7850 captures full resolution high definition (HD) images and video at 60 frames per second (fps). The sensor also supports advanced features such as high dynamic range (HDR) while maintaining excellent low-light sensitivity, providing the ideal camera solution for low light and high contrast viewing.

Built on OmniVision's OmniPixel3-HS™ technology, the OV7850 supports advanced image sensor processor functions such as automatic white balance control, lens shading correction, defect pixel correction, and de-noise and sharpening. The OV7850 enables WVGA, VGA, and NTSC output formats, delivering fully processed video outputs. These output formats support high dynamic range (HDR) rendering for human vision applications in a single chip application.

The OV7850 operates at commercial temperature grade from -30°C to +85°C, and comes in a 7.31 mm x 7.81 mm chip scale package (CSP) package.
