OmniVisionOmniVision image sensors for premium edgeless smartphones : OmniVision's brings advanced mobile imaging to next-generation premium smartphones. New image sensors offer optimized dual camera and better selfie capabilities for smartphones with edgeless displays. OmniVision announced the OV13A10 and OV13A1Q, a new family of 13-megapixel PureCel Plus-S stacked-die image sensors. Built on the companies second-generation PureCel Plus 1.0 micron pixel technology, the new camera sensors capture stunning images and bring a host of advanced capabilities such as high-resolution photography, super selfies, and 2x optical zoom to front- and rear-facing camera applications in mainstream smartphones. The OmniVision OV13A10 and OV13A1Q image sensors are currently available for sampling and are expected to enter volume production in Q4 2017.

"Edgeless displays in a 18:9 aspect ratio are the latest trend in high-end smartphones, but this trend presents considerable design challenges due to the tight space constraints. The new OV13A1Q is designed to meet the compact form factor requirements of a 13-megapixel camera module while providing high quality images and video in low-light conditions," said Leland Tsai, senior product marketing manager at OmniVision. "To enable dual camera configurations, the OV13A10 can be paired with our 12-megapixel OV12A10 image sensor to deliver up to 2x optical zoom, resulting in an imaging experience that consumers have grown accustomed to through the use of D-SLR cameras."

Telephoto camera sensor

The OmniVision OV13A10 is a premium telephoto sensor designed specifically for dual-camera applications. The high-end camera sensor allows for a small form factor module design that achieves a z-height of less than 6mm, and features zig-zag High Dynamic Range (zHDR) and phase detection autofocus (PDAF).

A customized Chief Ray Angle (CRA) enables the camera sensor to be used as a tele-sensor in a 2X optical zoom camera configuration. The sensor is also optimized for dual-camera zoom solutions, with features such as context switching and frame synchronizing to simplify camera system architecture.

The OV13A1Q combines the benefits of OmniVision's second-generation, 1.0-micron PureCel Plus-S technology with an advanced 4-cell mode with in-pixel binning to greatly enhance sensitivity for low-light selfie capture.

OmniVision also provides an advanced recovery software library for industry leading mobile platforms that enables full resolution mode for high-quality 13-megapixel image capture. With these advanced capabilities, the OV13A1Q is the best solution for super selfie cameras in high-end smartphone devices.

Both sensors leverage OmniVision's zHDR technology and PDAF, which extends the sensors' dynamic range capabilities and enables snap-quick autofocus, respectively. Using a long and short exposure in a single frame, zHDR enables live preview and video recording in HDR mode, as well as single-shot, full-resolution HDR images in capture mode without shutter lag.
