The OS04J10 is a 4-megapixel image sensor with a large, 2.9µm backside illuminated (BSI) pixel with PureCel Plus and Nyxel technology for ultra-low-light conditions.

The OS05L10 is a 5MP frontside illumination (FSI) image sensor featuring a 2.0-micron (µm) pixel based on OMNIVISION’s OmniPixel3-HS technology providing high sensitivity and performance.

These sensors are pin-to-pin compatible with some of the company's previous-generation sensors so customers can upgrade to higher resolution devices. The OS04J10 features OMNIVISION’s DCG Technology that extends HDR by sampling conversion gains twice and adding exposures for accurate scene reproduction, delivering more accurate, low-noise and motion artifact-free captures both indoors and outdoors.

Key features of the OS04J10 image sensor:

  • 2560 x 1440 resolution (4MP)
  • Frame rate of 60fps
  • 2-exposure staggered HDR and DCG™ HDR technology
  • NIR quantum efficiency: 850nm and 940nm
  • Ultra-low power (<200mW) and noise, long battery life
  • High performance 2.9 µm PureCel®Plus BSI Pixel
  • 1/1.88-inch optical format
  • Interface: MIPI/LVDS: 2/4-lane
  • CSP package

Key features of the OS05L10 image sensor:

  • 2880 x 1620 3K resolution (5MP) to capture real-time fast moving objects
  • Frame rate of 30fps
  • 2-exposure staggered HDR
  • High sensitivity 2.0 µm OmniPixel®3-HS FSI Pixel
  • 1/2.7-inch optical format (common size for cost-effective upgrades)
  • Interface: MIPI: 1/2-lane
  • CSP package

The OS04J10 also features a spread spectrum clocking (SSC) mode that reduces electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radiation. Both sensors are available for sampling now and will be in mass production in Q3 2024.
