OMNIVISION announced the new OCH2B30 camera module for three-dimensional (3D) intraoral dental scanners.

The OCH2B30 has a compact CameraCubeChip package in an ultra-small form factor (2.6 x 2.6mm), delivering high image quality and featuring a MIPI interface suitable for cameras in benchtop, standalone, and portable intraoral scanners.

“Intraoral scanners are quickly replacing the use of traditional dental impression in dentistry today. We are leveraging our proven technology from the medical endoscopy market to help advance intraoral scanners for dentistry,” said Aaron Chiang, Marketing Director, OMNIVISION. “Our CameraCubeChip technology enables the smallest camera modules for 3D intraoral dental scanners. Similar in size to the actual CMOS image sensor inside the camera, the CameraCubeChip enables ultra-compact, high-resolution cameras, which is especially important when there are multiple cameras in each scanning device. We expect the new OCH2B30 camera module to play an important role in driving the growth of the intraoral dental scanner market and, ultimately, in improving patient care.”

The global dental intraoral scanner market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.1% from 2023 to 2030, reaching $1,325.80 million by 2030, up from $573.76 million in 2022. This growth is driven by increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry, the prevalence of dental diseases, and new technological advancements in dentistry. Intraoral scanners are primarily used by orthodontists, endodontists, periodontists, prosthodontists, and general dentists.

The OCH2B30 camera module features a 2-megapixel (MP) resolution square-format CMOS image sensor with a 1.12-micron (µm) pixel, built on OMNIVISION’s latest PureCelPlus-S stacked-die technology, enabling its ultra-small size. The OCH2B30 achieves 60 frames per second (fps) at 1500 x 1500 resolution and 120 fps at 720p resolution.

Medical certifications streamline FDA approval process

OMNIVISION is ISO13485-certified. The OCH2B30 is tested for EMC/EMI compliance and sterilisation, and it is biocompatible and waterproof. Because it passes OMNIVISION’s rigorous production testing, it meets the stated electrical, mechanical, and optical specifications, eliminating the need for tuning or calibration.

Samples of the OCH2B30 CameraCubeChip are available now and in mass production.
