Color CMOS 20-megapixel (5184x3888) PureCelŪPlus-S Image Sensor

OmniVision's OV20880-4C is an ultra-compact image sensor engineered to bring 20-megapixel resolution to produce "super selfies" for high-end mobile applications using OmniVision's second-generation, 1.0-micron PureCel®Plus-S pixel technology. The OV20880-4C's on-chip pixel binning feature allows four times more light photons than a regular 1.0-micron pixel, enabling high-sensitivity and clear images in all lighting environments. The OV20880-4C pairs with OmniVision's complete software solution for resolution recovery and high-resolution, 20-megapixel selfies combined with a 4-cell mode.

The OV20880-4C offers a full 20-megapixel 4-cell RAW output mode and a 5-megapixel Bayer output mode that uses in-pixel binning to achieve 2.0-micron pixel performance. The OV20880-4C captures full-resolution 20-megapixel images and video at 30 frames per second (fps) and 1080p full high definition (HD) video at 120 fps. The OV20880-4C offers both MIPI D-PHY and C-PHY interfaces.

The OV20880-4C can fit in a package size of 8.5 x 8.5 mm with a z-height of 5.0 mm.
