OVM7695 Standard Reflowable Camera IC Requires Minimal Tuning, Offers Quicker Time to Market

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- OmniVision Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: OVTI), a leading developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, today announced the industry's most compact VGA CameraCubeChip to date: the high-performance OVM7695. With a module size of 2.4 x 2.4 x 2.3 mm, the reflowable OVM7695 offers an easy-to-use front-facing camera solution that requires minimal assembly and tuning effort, making it a highly attractive solution for mobile device manufacturers.

"Front-facing cameras have quickly become a defining feature in mobile devices. As these devices continue down the path of miniaturization, manufacturers are tasked with providing a better video recording experience within tighter space constraints," said Aaron Chiang, senior technical marketing manager at OmniVision. "OmniVision recognized this trend early on and committed its most advanced backside illumination pixel technology to these VGA products. Using the OmniBSI+ pixel architecture, the OVM7695 delivers high-quality video that consumers have come to expect, in a remarkably thin form factor. In addition, the OVM7695, as a standard camera IC, has minimal tuning requirements and low inventory risks, which reduces production cost and time-to-market for manufacturers."

The OVM7695 is built on an optimized 1.75-micron OmniBSI+(TM) pixel design, offering improved sensitivity and image reproduction to deliver optimal performance in difficult lighting conditions. The OVM7695 captures high-quality VGA video at 30 frames per second (FPS) and provides full-frame, sub-sampled and cropped images in various formats through the Serial Camera Control Bus (SCCB) interface.

The OVM7695 is currently sampling and is expected to enter volume production by the first quarter of 2013.
