OmniVisionChip with embedded Autofocus Control from OmniVision : OmniVision Technologies a world leading supplier of CMOS image sensors, today at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona unveiled the world’s first ¼-inch, 2 megapixel CameraChip with fully integrated autofocus (AF) control on a single chip. OmniVision is the first company to integrate AF functions on a 2 megapixel CMOS image sensor. Using its unique 2.2 micron OmniPixel2 architecture, OmniVision was able to develop this very small 2 megapixel sensor and integrate a full autofocus control on the same die. The OV2645’s advanced autofocus functions work with an integrated microcontroller that can directly control a variety of autofocus motors through its GPIO pads or serial bus.

This enables a very small, inexpensive, yet highly advanced single-chip autofocus camera module. It is in the range of 10x10mm, which is about 30% smaller than any competitive solutions available. “By continuously developing the smallest sensors and enabling cost effective integration of advanced functions on a single chip, OmniVision strives to be a leader in digital imaging,” said Jess Lee, Vice President of the Mainstream Products Business Unit at OmniVision. “The OV2645 underscores once again that OmniVision is at the forefront of bringing imaging advancements into the mainstream camera phone markets.”

Besides the AF control function, the OV2645 takes full advantage of the new OmniPixel2 architecture including high sensitivity, superior low light performance and a very advanced image signal processor block (OmniQSP™). The advanced image signal processor block provides high-grade picture processing, and features historically only found in digital still cameras. The OmniVision OV2645 camerachip is currently available for select customer sampling.
