Color CMOS WXGA (1280x800) High Dynamic Range (HDR) High Definition (HD) Image Sensor

OmniVision's OV9623 is a fully integrated, high sensitivity color CMOS system-on-chip (SOC) camera solution for advanced video imaging applications. The OV9623's 1/2.7-inch optical format delivers full resolution high definition (HD) images and video at 30 frames per second (fps). The OV9623 also supports advanced features such as high dynamic range (HDR), auto exposure, auto white balance, color correction, HDR tone mapping, and defective pixel correction.

Built on a 4.2-micron OmniPixel3-HS™ pixel, the 1-megapixel OV9623 enables best-in-class low-light sensitivity, delivering excellent scene reproduction even in demanding lighting conditions. The OV9623 offers complete user control of image quality, formatting, and output data transfer with image size options including WXGA (1280x800), 720p HD (1280x720), WVGA (752x480), and VGA (640x480).

Camera functions are programmable through a serial camera control bus (SCCB) interface, and additional features include a horizontal and vertical windowing capability, external frame sync capability, and 50/60 Hz flicker cancellation.

The OV9623 comes in a 7.795 mm x 7.145 mm chip scale package (CSP), and operates at commercial temperature grade from -30°C to +85°C.
