Throughout CES 2022, OmniVision has unveiled the world’s smallest 0.61-micron pixel 200MP picture sensor for high-end smartphones. Now, Omnivision is again introducing one other breakthrough—its latest and tiniest sensor with a dimension of solely 0.56-micron pixels.
OmniVision, a Chinese language CMOS producer and the present chief in picture sensor expertise, has formally introduced that it has developed the world’s smallest 0.56-micron pixel expertise. The official launch date has been introduced as effectively and it is going to be within the second quarter of this 12 months.
Based on the corporate, the design of its 0.56-micron pixel makes use of TSMC’s CMOS-specific 28nm course of. Nevertheless, the logic wafer makes use of the 22nm course of node. As well as, the pixels use deep photodiodes and OmniVision PureCelPlus expertise. This made it potential to attain QPD and QE efficiency just like their very own bigger 0.61-micron pixels.
“It takes nice R&D innovation to advance pixel expertise, particularly at this stage the place we’re going past the wavelength of sunshine,” stated Lindsay Grant, Senior Vice President of Course of Engineering at OMNIVISION. “We’ve got not compromised excessive efficiency with the smaller die dimension. In truth, we have now demonstrated comparable QPD and QE efficiency to our 0.61 µm pixel within the seen gentle vary,” she additional added.
