OmniVision CMOS camera chips in USA toys


Jasper Huitink : 2005-12-12 00:42:00
OmniVision CMOS camera chips in USA toys : OmniVision Technologies, Inc. the world’s leading supplier of CMOS image sensors, announced today that its OV7930 VGA CMOS CameraChip is featured in a video and music entertainment system from one of the largest toy makers in the world. The new toy puts kids on camera, so they can see themselves on TV as they sing along to their favorite songs. This toy is the first of its kind in the entertainment toy market. OmniVision’s OV7930 CameraChip brings to the table a cost efficient, true single-chip design with high video quality. With over one million units already shipped, the new video and music entertainment system is likely to be one of this year’s hottest selling Christmas toys.


Image Sensor from OmniVision for Mobile Cameras


Mark Peters : 2005-10-04 20:09:08
Image Sensor from OmniVision for Mobile Cameras : OmniVision Technologies, the world's leading supplier of CMOS image sensors, today unveiled the world's first fully integrated 1/4 inch 2 megapixel CameraChip, the OmniVision OV2640. This new image sensor is based on OmniVision's latest 2.2 micron OmniPixel2 architecture, allowing it to be assembled in the very popular 8 x 8 mm sockets with a building height of about 6.5 mm. This is essentially the same size as today's standard 1.3 megapixel camera modules, giving mobile handset and device designers, for the first time, the ability to easily upgrade and implement a high volume mainstream 2 megapixel mobile camera solution.


OmniVision enables phones with 3.2 MP sensor


Mark Peters : 2005-09-28 23:19:30
OmniVision enables phones with 3.2 MP sensor : OmniVision Technologies today introduced the OV3630, a high performance 3.2 megapixel CMOS image sensor for digital still image and video/still camera products. Incorporating OmniVision's new 2.2 micron OmniPixel2(TM) technology and a lens format of only 1/3.2 inches, the OV3630 enables a very compact auto focus and zoom camera module size and makes it possible for handset makers to bring 3 megapixel camera phones into the mainstream handset market. "This is the first product to showcase OmniVision's new OmniPixel2 technology," said Jess Lee, Vice President of the Mainstream Products Business Unit at OmniVision. The 2.2 micron pixel technology is the new standard for OmniVision.


OmniPixel2 architecture brings higher resolutions


Mark Peters : 2005-09-28 23:10:27
OmniPixel2 architecture brings higher resolutions : OmniVision Technologies today unveiled its new OmniPixel2 architecture. OmniPixel2's pixel size of just 2.2 x 2.2 microns is less than half the size of the first generation OmniPixel structures, and represents one of the industry's smallest pixel sizes commercially available. OmniVision OmniPixel2 also features three major new process and technology developments on both the sensor and system level, enabling better performance per area and a further reduction in overall sensor size. In a separate announcement today, OmniVision also introduced the OV3630 chip, its first 3 megapixel CameraChip designed for mobile applications and based on the new OmniPixel2 architecture.


OmniVision OV7670 CMOS image sensor


Dennis Hissink : 2005-08-15 14:50:39
OmniVision OV7670 CMOS image sensor : OmniVision Technologies launched the OV7670 CameraChip, a 1/6-inch VGA CMOS. With a pixel size reduced from 4.2 microns to 3.6 microns, the OV7670 uses a smaller optical format than its predecessor, the OV7660, which allows for a significant reduction in module height. "OmniVision's ability to keep driving down pixel size and improving image quality allows module makers to continue shrinking camera module sizes and helps handset makers develop smaller and more sophisticated devices," said Jess Lee, OmniVision's Director of Product Marketing. "With the OV7670 sensor's small footprint, high image quality and new LCD scaler feature, we believe OmniVision is well positioned to meet these needs."


OmniVision OV9655 CMOS image sensor


Ilse Jurriën : 2005-07-13 15:15:00
OmniVision OV9655 CMOS image sensor : OmniVision Technologies, Inc, the world's leading supplier of CMOS image sensors, today launched its OV9655, a newly improved 1.3 megapixel CMOS image sensor (CIS) for mobile applications. With significant improvements in its pixel performance, the new sensor offers added features and higher image quality. One key feature of the OV9655 is an LCD scaler, which allows handset makers to scale images to the exact size of the phone and eliminates any horizontal or vertical scaling bars on the LCD screen without the need for a more expensive backend DSP. In addition, the OV9655's improved DSP process improves the sensor's image processing capabilities, resulting in greatly enhanced image quality.


OmniVision Sub-$30 automotive camera module


Mark Peters : 2005-05-17 09:00:00
OmniVision Sub-$30 automotive camera module : OmniVision announced today that it will demonstrate a new reference design for a sub-$30 automotive camera module solution at the Techno Frontier Show in Tokyo, Japan (April 20 - 22). The reference design supports the OV7940, OmniVision's first OmniPixel technology sensor developed specifically for the automotive market. With its optimized single-chip CMOS design, the OV7940 enables a complete camera module with a bill-of-material cost of under US$30. This offers a significant savings over competing CCD module solutions, which can cost up to three times as much. Applications for the reference design include rear-seat displays, backup cameras and advanced airbag deployment systems.


OmniVision CMOS image sensors aquires CDM Optics


Mark Peters : 2005-03-29 11:30:39
OmniVision CMOS sensors aquires CDM Optics : OmniVision Technologies, one of the world's leading suppliers of CMOS image sensors, announced today that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire all of the outstanding securities of CDM Optics, Inc. CDM, a privately held Boulder, Colorado-based corporation, is the exclusive licensee of patented technology, developed by its co-founders, that substantially increases the performance of a camera system by increasing the depth of field and/or correcting optical aberrations of a photographic image. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close no later than April 30, 2005.
