Automotive Image Sensor Sets Performance Bars Higher

OmniVision Technologies’ OX03A10, a next-generation, 2.4-Megapixel image sensor designed for high-performance applications such as rear-view and 360-degree surround-view automotive cameras, leverages BSI-2 and Deep Well technologies.

 

The OX03A10 provides impressive low-light sensitivity in a 2.4-Megapixel resolution, making it well-suited to a wide range of viewing applications that demand excellent image quality in all lighting conditions. The advanced performance capabilities of this sensor make it ideal for high-end rear-view cameras, premium 360-degree surround-view cameras, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as blind-spot detection, e-mirrors and lane-departure warnings.

The OX03A10 addresses several issues with existing HDR image sensors, such as motion artifacts when taking multiple images and performance lags in low-light conditions. The OX03A10's HDR can deliver high quality images at up to 90 dB with single exposure and no motion artifacts, and up to 120 dB with double exposure. Additionally, OmniVision's state-of-the-art BSI-2 technology allows the sensor to combine low power consumption with superior image quality.

 

Designed with the automotive industry in mind, the OX03A10 incorporates an extensive set of functional-safety features that have a ISO26262 ASIL B-rating, allowing it to be used in safety-critical applications. The OX03A10 is available in two package types, a-CSP and a-BGA, both of which are automotive AEC-Q100 Grade 2 qualified. The a-BGA, selected for ease of manufacturing, is a new option for this class of sensor. The OX03A10 image sensors are currently sampling.
