OmniVisionPremium image sensor for main camera in flagship phones: OmniVision's 16 Megapixel camera image sensor with PureCel Plus-S technology takes smartphone photography to new next level. OmniVision Technologies, a manufacturer of digital imaging solutions, proudly presents the OV16B10 camera sensor. The high-resolution image sensor is specially designed for the next generation of premium mobile devices. Built on OmniVision's second-generation, 1.12-micron PureCel Plus-S pixel architecture, the new image sensor features high capacity, high-sensitivity imaging and phase-detection autofocus to deliver industry-leading performance to both single- and dual-camera applications. The 16 Megapixel camera sensor is expected to enter volume production in Q4 2017.

Premium camera sensor for high-end smartphones
Designed for main cameras in high-end smartphones, the new camera sensor from OmniVision provides an attractive upgrade option for smartphones in the today's 13 megapixel category.

With advanced features such as Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) and zigzag High Dynamic Range (zHDR), the new camera module captures professional images that consumers typically associate with digital SLR cameras.

New camera sensor

Phase Detection Auto Focus technology
PDAF is faster and more accurate than the conventional contrast-detection autofocus approach, making it the best autofocus solution for high-end smartphones.

The OmniVision OV16B10 sensor implements a new PDAF architecture that improves sensitivity when compared with previous generations of PDAF technology. This allows the new camera sensor to have accurate autofocus in low-light conditions.

Full resolution High Dynamic Range
zHDR technology extends the dynamic range capabilities of image sensors by using a long and short exposure in a single frame. When compared with traditional frame-based HDR (High Dynamic Range) techniques, the zHDR has increased dynamic range with minimum ghosting artifacts. This enables live preview and video recording in HDR mode, as well as single-shot, full-resolution HDR images in capture mode without shutter lag.

The OmniVision OV16B10 image sensor has a built-in feature that synchronizes the frames and supports context switching when it is used in dual-camera configurations, supporting image fusion while simplifying camera system architecture.

Additionally, the OV16B10 features a gyro interface that reads and synchronizes the motion data from an external gyroscope to enable precise image stabilization for video and still capture. The new camera sensor supports multiple resolution and frame rate configurations.
