The OV9728 is a low-power, cost-efficient CameraChip™ sensor designed for secondary camera applications in notebooks, tablets, smartphones and smart TVs. The high-performance OV9278 delivers exceptional 720p high-definition (HD) video, which exceeds the criteria of premium video specifications for Microsoft® Lync™ and Skype®.
The OV9728 utilizes a 1.75-micron OmniBSI™+ pixel architecture to deliver best-in-class low-light sensitivity, a 60 percent improvement in full-well capacity (FWC), a 4 dB improvement in dynamic range, and a significantly enhanced signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). A 1/6.5-inch sensor, the OV9728 can record 720p HD video at 30 frames per second (fps) or high-quality cropped VGA video at 60 fps.
The OV9728 provides full-frame, sub-sampled, windowed or scaled 8- and 10-bit images. All required image processing functions, including exposure control and defective pixel cancelling, are programmable through the serial camera control bus (SCCB) interface. It features a one-lane high-speed MIPI interface and fits into a compact 6 x 6 x 3 mm module.
