OmniVision Adds Powerful Electronic Distortion Correction Solution To Its Automotive Product Line

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OmniVision Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: OVTI), a leading developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, today announced the OV480, a powerful yet compact companion processor designed to enhance camera performance in wide field-of-view (FOV) applications for automotive vision systems. The low-cost, compact OV480 operates in conjunction with OmniVision's high performance AutoVision sensors to deliver best-in-class electronic distortion correction and significantly enhanced low-light performance, making the OV480 a highly attractive solution to automobile manufacturers.


"In light of anticipated developments in safety standards and related regulations, we are seeing greater demand than ever before for complete camera solutions that fit a broad scope of vehicle platforms," said Jeff Morin, automotive marketing manager at OmniVision. "Because of its ability to correct lens distortion of up to 195-degrees, the OV480 allows a single camera design to be used across multiple vehicle platforms, thus reducing the design-in and integration costs associated with rear-view and 360-degree surround view systems."

The OV480 processor supports a wide range of OmniVision image sensors designed specifically for automotive applications, including the OV7955, OV7962, OV10630 and OV10635. It features low-light performance enhancement and a temporal noise filter to deliver excellent scene reproduction in the most difficult lighting conditions. The OV480 also provides top down and perspective views, which offers clear imaging for specific rear-view driving functions such as trailer ball hitching. Additionally, the OV480 supports a cross traffic view feature, allowing drivers to view traffic from both sides of the vehicle. When used with AutoVision sensors, OmniVision's OV480 provides drivers with an unparalleled, feature-rich driving experience.

The OV480 fits into a compact 6.5 mm x 6.5 mm BGA package. It is currently sampling and is expected to enter volume production in the second quarter of 2013.
