OmniVision OV64A the first 64-megapixel sensor with 1 µm pixels
OmniVision Technologies, which is committed to serving the elite of the digital imaging industry, has announced the latest 64-megapixel OV64A sensor. The sensor is interesting because it has the largest pixels in its class, 1.008 µm. The optical format of the sensor is 1 / 1.34 inches.
Such large pixels should be useful for creating high-quality photos in poor outdoor lighting conditions. The increase in sensitivity of the sensor compared to the 64-megapixel sensor with 0.8 µm pixels is 60%.
Some of the advantages of the OmniVision OV64A include HDR with three exposures, 4-cell signal combination, tonal image, and built-in summation mechanism. It used PureCel® Plus-S multilayer crystal technology, there is support for 8K video recording at 30fps and uses binning pixels which allows you to put 4 pixels together to form one, which is ideal in poor lighting conditions, yields 16 MP images.
The serial production of the OmniVision OV64A sensor will begin in the fourth quarter of this year. As to which smartphones will receive it, no information is available.
