Image sensor for LED flicker mitigation with split-pixel design
OmniVision Technologies has announced the OX01D10 - its next generation 1MP image sensor for automotive viewing applications. This sensor brings together split-pixel and Dual Conversion Gain (DCG) technology, delivering artifact-free motion capture, High Dynamic Range (HDR) of up to 120dB, as well as LED Flicker Mitigation (LFM).
These features increase driver safety because more scene details can be captured by rear view and surround view cameras while operating over the full automotive temperature range.
Additionally, the OX01D10 provides suitable image quality in demanding lighting conditions such as capturing objects in motion along with LED signs and headlights.
“The OX01D10 delivers low power and high performance in a small form factor,” said Andy Hanvey, Automotive Marketing Director at OmniVision. “We provide the industry’s leading LFM performance over the full automotive temperature range, which meets the needs of OEMs that are increasingly requiring cameras to mitigate the flicker from LED lighting in vehicles, signs, buildings and a wide variety of other outdoor illumination.”
According to the company, the OX01D10 enables the industry’s smallest and most power efficient viewing camera modules by consuming less than 200mW at the full 30fps and providing the highest resolution in a 1/4" optical format. This new image sensor also has advanced ASIL features and HDR of 120dB without LFM (110dB in LFM mode).
