Omnivision has introduced a 5-megapixel CMOS image sensor for automotive use cases where high dynamic range (HDR), low-light performance and LED flicker mitigation (LFM) is needed.

The company said the adoption of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles has upped the requirement for sensors with improved LFM, HDR and high-resolution image sensors. This includes pulsed illumination from LED traffic lights that pose a challenge to imaging solutions, which prevents ADAS and autonomous driving systems from detecting lighted traffic signs.

Based on Omnivision’s 2.1-micron single-pixel TheiaCel technology, the sensor uses lateral overflow integration capacitor (LOFIC) capabilities with HDR technologies for high contrast scenes for high image quality.

Other features of the OX05D10 include:

  • 5MP sensor
  • 140 dB dynamic range
  • 110 dB LFM and motion free dynamic range
  • Stability over temperature range
  • Cybersecurity and ASIL B
  • Support for 4-lane MIPI CSI-2
  • a-CSP package technology
