Color CMOS Analog Half VGA (400x400) CameraCubeChip™ with OmniBSI™ Technology

OmniVision's OVM6946 is a compact camera module for medical applications such as minimally-invasive endoscopes. The 1/18-inch OVM6946 utilizes OmniVision's market-proven CameraCubeChip™ wafer-level module technology to streamline manufacturing processes and shorten time-to-market, and is the industry's most cost-effective single-chip imaging solution for single-use endoscopes.

Built on OmniVision's OmniBSI+™ pixel architecture, the OVM6946 captures high quality 400 x 400 resolution video at 30 frames per second (fps). The OVM6946 comes in a compact 1.05 mm x 1.05 mm package with a z-height of 2.27 mm, enabling a wide 120-degree field of view with an extended focusing range of 3 mm to infinity. The OVM6946 is well-suited to a wide range of endoscope applications, including medical, veterinarian, and industrial.
