Omnivision has announced a CMOS 4-megapixel (MP) image sensor that brings 2K resolution digital images and high-definition (HD) video to consumer security devices, including smart home, doorbell, baby monitor, IP, and HD analog cameras. The OS04L sensor provides OEMs with a cost-effective upgrade path for their camera resolution to go from 2 or 3MP to 4MP with a smaller pixel sensor in a 1/3-inch optical format.

The device features a 2.0-micron pixel based on the company’s OmniPixel3-HS technology. The high-performance, cost-effective solution uses high-sensitivity frontside illumination (FSI) for true-to-life color reproduction in both bright and dark conditions.

“The OS04L provides a seamless camera resolution upgrade to 4MP for consumer security devices at a price point comparable to 2MP and 3MP sensors,” says Cheney Zhang, senior marketing manager, OMNIVISION. “This is especially important as we are seeing an increasing demand for entry-level smart home devices across the globe, and customers want a high-performance, cost-effective product.”

The OS04L image sensor features 2K resolution at 30 frames per second and has 2×2 binning for enhanced sensitivity. It supports MIPI interfaces. The OS04L will be sampling in Q4 2022 and will be in mass production in Q1 2023.
