(NASDAQ: OVTI), a leading developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, today announced the OV5656, a high performance, cost-effective 5-megapixel CameraChip sensor for growing smartphone, tablet and digital video camera (DVC) markets. The OV5656 utilizes OmniVision's improved and cost-competitive OmniBSI+ pixel architecture to deliver full-resolution, high-speed photography at 30 frames per second (FPS) and high definition (HD) video, making it an attractive solution for a wide range of video-centric applications.

"Industry reports are predicting an annual demand of more than 450 million 5-megapixel image sensors over the next three years, and the OV5656's high performance and competitive cost structure make it a highly desirable camera solution for OEMs across multiple markets," said Vinoo Margasahayam, senior product marketing manager at OmniVision. "Compared to the previous-generation OV5650, the OV5656 delivers several performance improvements, including full resolution, high-speed 5-megapixel photography at 30 FPS, a 28 percent improvement in full-well capacity and significantly improved dynamic range in a smaller die size."

The 1/3.2-inch OV5656 utilizes advanced 1.75-micron OmniBSI+ pixel architecture. The sensor's integrated scaler allows it to record 1080p HD video at 30 FPS with electronic image stabilization (EIS) while maintaining full field-of-view (FOV). Using 2 x 2 binning functionality with post-binning re-sampling filter, the OV5656 can capture 720p HD video at 60 FPS. Additionally, the OV5656 features a high-speed 4-lane MIPI interface and LVDS serial output interface to facilitate the required high data transfer rate.

The OV5656 fits into a module size of 8.5 x 8.5 with a z-height of less than 6 mm. It is currently available for sampling in both RW and CSP.
