A cost-effective 2.5-micron frontside-illuminated pixel that’s optimized for heightened sensitivity, efficiency, and dependability, complemented by an on-sensor  Directional Polarimetric Camera.

OMNIVISION has unveiled its latest offering, the OS02N – a 2-megapixel (MP) frontside illumination (FSI) image sensor. Tailored for  Internet Protocol (IP) and high-definition (HD) analog security cameras, this new sensor promises to set a new benchmark in professional surveillance and outdoor home security solutions. The company mentions that the market demands security cameras that deliver high-resolution, crisp images and consume minimal power for prolonged battery life. The newly launched sensor perfectly aligns with these needs, offering an efficient and cost-effective solution.

The key features include:

  • 2.5-micron pixels
  • Supports full HD resolution
  • Captures visuals at 1920×1080
  • Fluid 30 frames per second

It caters to Front-side illuminated (FSI)  technology; leveraging a larger pixel size ensures superior quantum efficiency and an impressive signal-to-noise ratio. It produces superior sensitivity even in dim lighting, ensuring clear and detailed images. It has a 1/3.27-inch optical format and is engineered for seamless compatibility with the company’s  OS04L and OS04D image sensors.

The pixel technology used in this camera fortifies the sensor’s capacity to reproduce colours authentically under varying lighting conditions. Another noteworthy feature is its advanced defective pixel correction (DPC) algorithm, which elevates sensor reliability. Offering real-time correction for defective pixels – a common concern, especially under challenging operating scenarios – ensures the sensor’s longevity and optimal performance. For tech enthusiasts, the camera supports both Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) and digital video port (DVP) interfaces. The mass production is slated to kick off in the first quarter of 2024. The company claims that the camera is poised to redefine the standards for security camera performance, marrying exceptional quality with reliability and efficiency. The future of surveillance looks brighter than ever.
