The OV7957 is a low-cost, high-performance analog and digital image sensor designed specifically for mainstream automotive applications. The AEC-Q100 Grade 2 qualified OV7957 offers superior low-light sensitivity in an ultra-compact module size, making it an ideal camera solution for rear-view, surround-view and blind spot detection systems.
Additionally, the OV7957 offers features new to the automotive industry, including built-in memory for initialization, which reduces a camera's overall bill of materials and size. A crop and resize feature allows a standard camera module to be designed into virtually any vehicle platform without requiring mechanical adjustments by cropping the active array while the sensor scales it back up to NTSC format.
Utilizing OmniVision's proprietary high-sensitivity OmniPixel®3-HS pixel architecture, the sensor offers industry-leading low-light sensitivity of 16 V/lux-sec and excellent signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR).
The OV7957 features the industry's smallest AEC-Q100 qualified automotive package (a-CSP™), measuring only 5.7 x 5.4 mm, and offers an operating temperature range of -40°C and +105°C.
