OMNIVISION Launches OX01J High-Performance Sensor for Vehicle Cameras

The OX01J is OMNIVISION’s most advanced automotive image sensor for SVS and RVC and is pin-to-pin compatible with the popular OX01E20 SoC


OMNIVISION, a leading global developer of semiconductor solutions, including advanced digital imaging, analog and touch & display technology, announced its new 1.3-megapixel (MP) OX01J image sensor for automotive 360-degree surround-view systems (SVS) and rear-view cameras (RVC). The OX01J is a raw image sensor with top-of-the-line LED flicker mitigation (LFM) and 140db high dynamic range (HDR). Availability of the OX01J provides automotive OEMs with the flexibility to purchase just the image sensor if they already have their own backend image signal processor (ISP) architecture.

“We originally designed the OX01E20 SoC to provide customers with superior LFM, HDR, and low-light performance for their next-generation vehicles, and it has generated strong market traction since its launch a year ago. In an effort to give our customers greater flexibility for their designs, we now offer the OX01J – it offers the same performance as the OX01E20 SoC but is a raw sensor alternative for our customers to choose from, based on their system architecture,” said Paul Wu, head of automotive product marketing at OMNIVISION.

The OX01J provides the industry’s best imaging performance in its class, for SVS and RVC across a range of challenging lighting conditions, along with the most compact form factor and lowest power consumption. It features a 3-micron (µm) pixel in a 1/3.55-inch optical format with class leading low-light performance and ultra-low power. It comes in an a-CSP™ package for the smallest possible solution and is built on OMNIVISION’s PureCel®Plus architecture, which is renowned for its low-light sensitivity and the industry’s leading signal-to-noise ratio performance.

OMNIVISION Announces First 3MP SoC Image Sensor for LED Flicker-Free, High Dynamic Range Automotive Cameras

Announced at CES 2024, the OX03J10 is a small, low-power-consumption image sensor for surround- and rear view cameras, that provides superior image quality in both low and bright light conditions

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – January 9, 2024 – OMNIVISION, a leading global developer of semiconductor solutions, including advanced digital imaging, analog and touch & display technology, today debuted the first OX03J10 3-megapixel (MP) CMOS system-on-chip (SoC) image sensor with 140dB high dynamic range (HDR) and LED flicker mitigation (LFM) for superior image quality regardless of lighting condition. The OX03J10 SoC is ideal for surround-view system (SVS), rear-view camera (RVC) and camera-monitoring systems (CMS). By integrating the image sensor with a dedicated image signal processor (ISP) into one SoC, HDR and LFM performance are optimized and the size and cost of the device are reduced.

“As the global leading developer of in-cabin automotive image sensors, OMNIVISION has been providing image sensor solutions in the fields of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD) for a long time,” said Naresh Shetty, automotive staff marketing manager at OMNIVISION. “Our new OX03J10 facilitates high-level assisted-driving functions for 360-degree SVS, and CMS while offering outstanding low-light performance. It also offers the ideal feature set, including lens correction, defective pixel correction, HDR/LFM combination, tone mapping, automatic image signal processing, imaging effects, and low power consumption.”

With its high sensitivity, the OX03J10 is able to capture objects and road condition changes quickly and accurately during high speed operations, and to optimize image clarity under low light and/or short exposure times. LFM eliminates LED flicker and enhances driver safety.

The OX03J10 is a low-power device that features 1920×1536 resolution in a 1/2.4-inch optical format. The OX03J10 comes in the industry’s smallest a-CSP package. It features OMNIVISION’s PureCel technology and uses a 3-micron (µm) Deep Well™ split pixel. It outputs YUV and RAW simultaneously. The OX03J10 is ASIL-C compliant.

Samples of the OX03J10 are available now, and it is scheduled for mass production in Q1 2024.
