CORRECTING and REPLACING OMNIVISION Unveils Next-Generation Global Shutter Image Sensor for Consumer AR/VR/MR and Metaverse

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–()–Second paragraph, third sentence of version dated December 6, 2022 should read: It has a resolution of 640 x 480 with a package size of only 3.6mm x 2.7mm and comes in a 1/7.5 inch optical format. (Instead of It has a 640 x 480 resolution with a pixel size of just 3.6mm x 2.7mm and is available in a 1/7.5 inch optical format.).

The updated version reads as follows:


The OG0VE is a 3.0 µm global shutter sensor that is 26% smaller and over 50% more power efficient than its predecessor

OMNIVISION, one of the world’s leading developers of semiconductor solutionsincluding advanced digital, analog and touch and display technologytoday announced the OG0VE global shutter (GS) image sensor – a small form factor, high sensitivity device for AR/VR/MR, metaverse, drone, machine vision and barcode reader products. This next-generation image sensor is 26% smaller and more than 50% more energy efficient than its predecessor.

The OG0VE CMOS image sensor has a sensitive 3.0 micron pixel based on OMNIVISION’s OmniPixel®3-GS technology. The sensor’s global shutter pixel architecture and excellent low-light sensitivity allow it to be used for any application requiring simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), gesture detection, head tracking and eyes, as well as depth and motion detection. It has a resolution of 640 x 480 with a package size of just 3.6mm x 2.7mm and is available in a 1/7.5 inch optical format. It has very low power consumption, at less than 34 mW when running at 60 frames per second (fps) with VGA.

“The OG0VE was designed to meet the strong market demand for the smallest, most power-efficient cameras for AR/VR devices, especially because battery-powered AR/VR devices require multiple cameras for SLAM, transmission and tracking purposes in limited space. The OG0VE image sensor meets the needs of the market with OMNIVISION’s best GS image sensor technology,” said David Shin, Director of Product Marketing at OMNIVISION “The OG0VE is particularly suited for small form factor design flexibility in consumer AR/VR/MR glasses and headsets.”

According to a report by MarketsandMarkets, the AR/VR market is expected to reach USD 37.0 billion this year and could potentially reach USD 114.5 billion by 2027, with a five-year market growth rate of 25.3%.1

The sensor supports single-lane MIPI D-PHY up to 800 Mbps. It comes in OMNIVISION’s CSP package or as a bare chip. The OG0VE GS image sensor is available for sampling now and will be in mass production in mid-2023. For more information, contact your OMNIVISION sales representative:
