OmniVision Technologies, developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, announced the OX03C10 ASIL-C automotive image sensor—the world’s first for viewing applications that combines a large 3.0 micron pixel size with a high dynamic range (HDR) of 140 dB and the best LED flicker mitigation (LFM) performance for viewing applications with minimized motion artifacts. This is also the first viewing image sensor with HDR and LFM that can deliver 1920 x 1280p resolution at the highest rate of 60 frames per second (fps), enabling greater design flexibility and faster camera-view switching for drivers. Additionally, the OX03C10 has the lowest power consumption of any LFM image sensor with 2.5MP resolution—25% lower than the nearest competitor—along with the industry’s smallest package size, enabling the placement of cameras that continuously run at 60 fps in even the tightest spaces for stringent styling requirements.
Basic image processing capabilities were also integrated into this sensor, including defect pixel correction and lens correction. Furthermore, the integration of OmniVision’s industry-leading HALE (HDR and LFM engine) combination algorithm uniquely provides top HDR and LFM performance simultaneously. With such industry-leading features, the OX03C10 provides the best image quality for automotive viewing applications, including rearview cameras (RVC), surround view systems (SVS), camera monitoring systems (CMS) and e-mirrors.
