Built on OmniVision's latest 1.4-micron OmniBSI™ pixel architecture, the new OV5645 offers high performance 5-megapixel photography and 720p high definition (HD) video at 60 frames per second (FPS) and 1080p HD video at 30 FPS with complete user control over formatting and output data transfer. The sensor's 720p HD video is captured in full field-of-view (FOV) with 2 x 2 binning, which doubles the sensitivity and improves the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Additionally, a unique post-binning, re-sampling filter function removes zigzag artifacts around slant edges and minimizes spatial artifacts to deliver even sharper, crisper color images.The OV5645 comes in CSP and RW packaging options and is now available for sampling, with mass production expected to begin in the first quarter of 2013.
