OmniVisionOmniVision 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.

The OV7940 is built to stringent, high-end specifications of the Automobile Electronics Council's AEC-Q100 criteria encompassing a series of tests including preconditioning, humidity, high-temperature cycle, mechanical, optical and electrical test parameters. The OV7940's high light sensitivity and its operational temperature range of -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C meet the critical requirements for automotive applications. The OV7940 sensor has been shipping on a sample basis since its launch in mid-March 2005 and, owing to the high degree of customer interest, scheduled mass production has been accelerated to early in the third quarter of calendar 2005.
