Today, OmniVision, the world’s third-largest mobile phone image sensor company, released the OV64A image sensor, which is the world’s first 1.0-micron 64-megapixel image sensor. Its large size and high-resolution characteristics make it suitable for high-end smartphones. Provides better low-light camera performance, and supports video recording up to 8K30 frames.
The OV64A sensor has a resolution of 64 million pixels and a 1/1.34 inch outsole. The straight-out single pixel area reaches 1 micron. The four-in-one output is 16 million pixels and 2 micrometers, which is significantly larger than the 64 million pixels of the Sony IMX686. 0.8 micron or four-in-one 1.6 microns, can be used as a wide-angle or ultra-wide-angle camera in a mobile phone, providing excellent low-light performance.
OV64A also adopts Howe Technology's PureCel Plus-S wafer stacking technology, integrated on-chip four-in-one color filter array and hardware pixel reduction algorithm, which can be 64 million pixel Bayer output or 8K video. This sensor has three exposures, four-in-one HDR, on-chip composition and tone mapping, and interleaved HDR timing options for the second and third exposures.
Haowei Technology was established in 1995, specializing in the development of highly integrated CMOS imaging technology, and is known as the world's three largest mobile phone image sensor companies with Samsung and Sony. Howe Technology is headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, and was acquired by a Chinese consortium in 2015. The main camera of the previously released Mi 10 Extreme Edition uses a 48-megapixel OV48A sensor, supports dual ISO hybrid output, and ranks first in the DXOMark image ranking.
