OmniVision Technologies Inc.'s OV7727 is a 1/13in VGA sensor for the high-end ultra-thin notebook market. It is built with OmniBSI backside illumination technology, and combines strong performance and sensitivity with its ultra-compact form factor. It enables camera integration into sub-2mm LCDs for next generation notebooks, netbooks and tablet computers.

Using a 1.75?m OmniBSI pixel, the OV7727 delivers video conference-quality low-light performance of 1,300mV/lux-sec, while enabling complete camera modules with Z-height as low as 2.2mm.

The sensor offers complete user control over image quality, resolution and output data format. It provides full frame, sub-sampled, windowed or scaled 8b/10b images in RAW RGB format over a parallel DVP interface or serial MIPI port, offering a versatile platform for use in single and multi-camera applications. A new feature on the OV7727 is a serial peripheral interface, which supports multiple cameras using a single controller, while also offering support to touch screen applications.

The camera comes with a full array of high end image processing functions, including automatic exposure control, gamma correction, automatic white balance control, and defect pixel correction, which are all programmable through the serial camera control bus interface.

The OV7727 is now available for sampling and is expected to enter mass production in September 2010.
