OV6930 400 x 400 product brief
Industry's Smallest 400 x 400 Image Sensor
lead free

a lead-free
With a packaged footprint of only 1.8 mm x 1.8 mm, the
OV6930 is the ideal solution for camera applications
that require less than a 2.6 mm outside diameter, such
as medical endoscopes. The OV6930's unique
architecture combines ultra-low power consumption
with OmniVision's best-in-class pixel technology,
OmniPixel3-HS™, enabling low-light performance of
3300 mV/lux-sec.
In addition to its small footprint and extraordinary
performance, the OV6930 offers raw serial output,
allowing cabling up to 14 feet with two wires.
The low-voltage OV6930 provides either full-frame or
cropped analog images in RAW RGB format via serial
camera control bus (SCCB) interface control.
The device offers an image array capable of operating
up to 30 frames per second (fps) in 400 x 400 or 60 fps
in 400 x 200 resolution, with simplified exposure
control programmable through the SCCB interface.
OmniVision's image sensors leverage proprietary
technology to improve image quality by reducing or
eliminating common lighting/electrical sources of image
contamination, such as fixed pattern noise and
smearing, to produce a clean, fully stable, color image.
No other image sensor on the market offers high
performance and sensitivity in such a small form factor.
