OmniVision Launches Tiny OV3647 3MP MDDI Image Sensor


OmniVision has launched the OV3647, which the company claims to be the world’s first 1/4-inch, 3-megapixel image sensor that supports the mobile display digital interface (MDDI), a high speed serial interface promoted by QUALCOMM for use with its chipsets.

The OV3647 uses OmniVision’s proprietary 1.75 micron OmniPixel3 technology, and has been designed to optimize partitioning with QUALCOMM’s chipsets, which should mean customers will get greater levels of system integration and performance, as well as reducing overall system cost.

The OV3647 has a 3-megapixel image array, capable of operating at up to 15 frames per second in QXGA (2048 x 1536) resolution, with complete user control over image quality, format and output data transfer. All required programming functions are accessible via the SCCB interface or MDDI interface.
