New OV7676 1/7.5-Inch System-On-A-Chip VGA Sensor Excels In Both Performance And Cost-Effectiveness

SANTA CLARA, Calif., -- OmniVision Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: OVTI), a leading developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, today announced the OV7676, a new cost-effective 1/7.5-inch system-on-a-chip (SOC) VGA sensor. Leveraging OmniVision's established OmniPixel3-HS(TM) technology, the OV7676 brings best-in-class pixel performance to a wide range of applications, including mobile phones, tablets, wearables, notebooks, and IP network cameras.

"The OV7676 is uniquely positioned to deliver high-level performance to a diverse range of consumer devices that have stringent requirements on function and value," said Paul Gallagher, senior director of marketing and business development at OmniVision. "With more mainstream devices incorporating cameras in their designs, we believe the OV7676 is ideally suited to meet the demands of this particular product segment. Likewise, the OV7676 can also serve as a cost-effective camera solution for emerging applications, such as IP security cameras and wearable devices."

Built on OmniVision's 3-micron OmniPixel3-HS technology, the OV7676 achieves best-in-class low-light sensitivity, signal-to-noise ratio, full-well capacity, quantum efficiency and low-power consumption. When used as a front-facing camera solution in smartphones, tablets and notebooks, the OV7676 also supports video-in-video functionality, allowing users to simultaneously record video feeds from both the front- and rear-facing cameras. Additionally, the OV7676 supports serial peripheral interface (SPI) and digital video port (DVP) interface customization for both smartphone and feature phone platforms.

The OV7676 fits into a 2.73 x 2.47 mm chip-scale package. The sensor is currently available for sampling and is expected to enter volume production in the fourth quarter of 2014.
