OMNIVISION, a global developer of semiconductor solutions, including advanced digital imaging, analog, and touch & display technology, announced the new OS02N, a 2-megapixel (MP) frontside illumination (FSI) image sensor with optimized defective pixel correction (DPC) algorithm for higher sensitivity, improved performance and increased reliability for IP and HD analog security cameras, including professional surveillance and outdoor home security cameras. The OS02N supports always-on with its low-power capability.
“Customers need high-performing security cameras that produce sharp, high-resolution images with low power consumption for extended battery life. The OS02N meets these requirements and is also a cost-effective solution,” said Cheney Zhang, senior marketing manager, OMNIVISION. “The OS02N uses FSI technology, which has a large pixel size for better quantum efficiency and excellent signal-to-noise ratio, resulting in high sensitivity in low-light conditions and dramatically improved image quality and performance. It has a 1/3.27-inch optical format and is designed to be pin-to-pin compatible with our OS04L and OS04D image sensors.”
The OS02N features a 2.5-micron pixel based on OMNIVISION’s OmniPixel®3-HS technology. This enhanced-performance, cost-effective solution uses FSI technology for true-to-life color reproduction in both bright and dark conditions. Optimized DPC algorithm improves sensor quality and reliability above and beyond standard devices by providing real-time correction of defective pixels that can result throughout the sensor’s life cycle, especially in harsh operating conditions. The OS02N features 1920×1080 resolution at 30 frames per second (FPS).
