Groomed for a plethora of computer-vision, gesture-recognition, and detection applications, the OV6211 debuts as the world¹s smallest global shutter sensor. The 1/10.5-inch device fits into an ultra-compact 3.2 x 3.2 mm chip-scale package (CSP3). It is also described as the industry¹s first global shutter sensor to capture 400 x 400 (square) resolution video at 120 fps with a 3-µm OmniPixel3-GS global shutter pixel. Other features include two low-power modes: light sensing mode and ultra-low power mode. In light sensing mode, the OV6211 wakes up from sleep mode only when a change in light occurs. In ultra-low power mode, the sensor reduces resolution and frame rates to conserve additional power.
