OmniVision Simplifies Mobile Phone Design With New CameraCube Technology

via PRNewswire

Innovation Fuels Future Growth

Initially targeted at the low-end mobile phone market, the ultra-small size and thermal tolerance characteristics (up to 260 degrees C), make CameraCube devices well suited for a number of emerging markets including notebook PC, surveillance, automotive and medical cameras. "Consumer demand continues to drive the trend toward miniaturization and lower costs. With the introduction of CameraCube technology, OmniVision is in lock-step with the evolution of the mobile phone," said Pamela Tufegdzic , Consumer Electronics analyst at iSuppli, a leading market research firm. "By leveraging their expertise in CSP packaging and wafer-level optics, OmniVision has developed a viable solution for the highly-competitive mobile phone market, where cost and fast time-to-market is critical."

Product Availability

The new CameraCube devices, which include the OVM6680 (400 x 400 SGA) and OVM7690 (VGA), are immediately available in volume production. For more information visit or contact your local sales representative.
