Automotive camera SoC combines low-light performance, lowest power and smallest size
Omnivision Technologies has announced a System on Chip (SoC) which, according to the manufacturer, should set best marks in a whole range of disciplines: It offers the industry’s best low-light performance, lowest power consumption and smallest size. The SoC that combines an image sensor and a signal processor also offers 120 dB HDR and ASIL-B functionality.

In a single, 1/4" optical format package, the OX01F10 integrates a 3.0 micron image sensor and an advanced image signal processor (ISP), solving the automotive rear view camera (RVC) and surround view system (SVS) challenges of achieving a small form factor with excellent low-light performance, ultra-low power and reduced cost while improving reliability by using only one printed circuit board (PCB).

OmniVision's dual conversion gain (DCG) technology is employed in this SoC to achieve a high dynamic range of 120dB with only two captures, as opposed to three required by the competition, which minimizes motion artifacts while reducing power consumption and boosting low-light performance. Its integrated ISP further enables superior image quality with a number of advanced features, such as lens chromatic aberration correction, advanced noise reduction, and optimizations for the on-chip image sensor's PureCelPlus technology.

The PureCel Plus technology has a low-light sensitivity, providing an industry best SNR1 of 0.19 lux. This results in the OX01F10 performing better than the competition across challenging lighting conditions, enabling the ability to eliminate unnatural halos from LEDs and to provide better contrast on bright days.
