OmniVision Technologies Inc. has unleashed a 16MP PureCel Plus-S image sensor that promises to offer improved low-light performance and faster readout architecture with a larger 1.3?m pixel. The OV16860 enables full resolution recording at 45fps and also supports advanced features such as high dynamic range (HDR), phase detection autofocus (PDAF), and slow motion video recording, to target applications such as high-end smartphones and action cameras.

The OV16860 is the first image sensor built on OmniVision's PureCel Plus-S architecture that features a larger pixel size and offers a number of pixel performance improvements over traditional 1.12?m 16MP sensors. The performance benefits of this technology include a 33 per cent improvement in full-well capacity, a 40 per cent improvement in low light performance and dramatically reduced pixel crosstalk, detailed the company. These advances can support crisp, vibrant images across all light levels.


Additionally, the OV16860 enables a nominal operating digital voltage (DVDD) spec of 1V, and thus requires 40 per cent less power than the previous generation OV16825.

The 1/2.4in OV16860 supports high-quality slow motion video capture with full field of view (FOV). The sensor can capture ultra-high resolution 4K2K video at 60fps, and 1080p high definition (HD) video at 120fps via high speed D-PHY and C-PHY interfaces.

The OV16860 can fit into a 10.5mm x 10.5mm module with a low z-height of 5.8mm. The sensor is available for sampling, and is expected to enter volume production in 4Q15.
