OmniVision announced the release of the OS04C10, a 2.0 micron pixel, 4 megapixel (MP) resolution image sensor for both IoT and home security cameras.

The image sensor can enable ultra-low power mode for battery-powered cameras that have AI functionalities. Further, it provides a resolution of 2688 x 1520 with a 16:9 aspect ratio, while adding the performance of  OmniVision’s Nyxel® and PureCel® Plus.  

By coupling the two, in addition to multiple HDR options, the OS04C10 works in all lighting conditions. It has the ability to detect incident light in visible and NIR wavelengths while producing precise color and monochrome images for security applications.

Per the company, Nyxel technology provides the OS04C10 with exceptional quantum efficiency, enabling it to see better and further at the 850nm and 940nm NIR wavelengths. The QE enables the use of lower power IR illumination in complete darkness, which reduces system-level power consumption.

Furthermore, 940nm NIR lighting cannot be detected by the human eye in dark indoor settings, while 850nm light is ideal for outdoor security cameras. It’s built on the PureCel Plus pixel architecture to provide a low-noise design.
