OmniVision, a maker of digital image solutions, recently announced the launch of the first 0.8um 48 million pixel image sensor OV48B, to achieve 1/2" optical size high resolution.

According to the official website, the product uses Howe Technology's PureCel ®Plus chip stacking technology to provide state-of-the-art still image and video capture for mainstream smartphones, and OV48B also provides a variety of digital crop zoom and CPHY interfaces.

"Consumers are increasingly demanding resolution for high-end and mainstream phones." Arun Jayaseelan, Senior Marketing Manager of Howie Technology, said: "with high resolution and top image quality, OV48B is ideal for high-end and mainstream smartphones. The 0.8 micron pixel size makes it the smallest chip in the industry to provide 48 million pixel resolution and enables 1 to 2 'optical format'.

OV48B integrates 4-cell color filter array and hardware re-mosaic algorithm to provide high quality 48 million pixel Bayer output in real time. Under low light conditions, the sensor can use near pixels to combine 12MP images with quadruple sensitivity. Under any condition, OV48B can consistently capture the best quality image without motion blur, and can realize digital clipping zoom with 12MP resolution and fast mode switching. In addition, the OV48B can flexibly set up the CPHY interface to achieve wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle functions, making it an ideal choice for dual-camera and three-camera configurations.

The new sensor also has DPHY and CPHY MIPI interfaces that allow for fast frame rates with fewer pins. The OV48B is equipped with 2x2 microlens phase detection autofocus (ML-PDAF) to improve accuracy; it can be imaged perfectly even in low light conditions. The product comes in a number of output formats, including 48MP at 10 frames per second, 12MP with 4-cell binning at 30 frames per second, 4K 2K video at 60 frames per second, 1080p video at 240frames per second, and 720p video at 480 fp frames per second. The position of the pads on the left and right of the image sensor is combined with the industry's smallest bare 48MP sheet size, providing additional flexibility for smartphone camera module designers.

Samples of OV48B are now on the market and are expected to be mass produced in the fourth quarter of 2019.
