The OV24A sensors are OmniVision’s first sensors with 0.9-micron pixels. Built on PureCel Plus stacked-die architecture, the sensors offer quantum efficiency performance matching that of the latest 1.0-micron pixel sensors. The combination of smaller pixels, higher resolution and improved performance makes the OV24A sensors an ideal camera solution for front- and rear-facing camera applications in high-end smartphones.
The OV24A sensor family consists of three individual products: OV24A1Q, OV24A1B and OV24A10.
The OV24A1Q, with its unique four-cell color-filter pattern, is ideal for front-facing camera applications. This sensor has an on-chip, in-pixel binning feature that captures four times more light photons than a standard 0.9-micron pixel, enabling better image quality in low-light conditions.
When used as the primary, rear-facing camera in a dual-camera configuration, the OV24A1B (monochrome) and OV24A10 (Bayer) sensors enable higher zoom ratios and higher-quality still images and video even in low-light conditions.
All three versions of the OV24A sensors are available in a 1/2.8-inch optical format and support phase detection autofocus and high dynamic range. The sensors are capable of recording ultra-high-quality video in a wide range of resolution formats, including full-resolution 24-megapixel, 4K2K, 1080p and 720p.
