OmniVision OV2720 World's Smallest 1080p Camera Module

OmniVision announced the OV2720 the world’s first 1/6-inch, native 1080p/30 high-definition (HD) CMOS image sensor designed for notebook, webcam and video conferencing applications. It utilizes the 1.4-micron OmniBSI pixel technology offering a z-height of 3.5mm. The OV2720 supports 8-/10-bit raw RGB data and offers Digital video port (DVP) parallel output interface.

Two models are available, the OV2720-A50A in 50-pin CSP3 package and the OV2720-G04A in RW package. Both offer 2 Megapixel resolution and 30 frame rate at 1080p resolution.


  • 1.4 μm x 1.4 μm pixel with OmniBSI technology for high performance (high sensitivity, low crosstalk, low noise)
  • Automatic image control functions: automatic exposure control (AEC), automatic white balance (AWB), automatic band filter (ABF), and automatic black level calibration (ABLC)
  • Programmable controls for frame rate, AEC/AGC 16-zone size/position/weight control, mirror and flip, cropping, windowing, and panning
  • Image quality controls: lens correction, 2-D defective pixel canceling
  • Support for output formats: 8-/10-bit raw RGB data
  • Support for video or snapshot operations
  • Support for horizontal and vertical sub-sampling
  • Standard serial SCCB interface
  • Digital video port (DVP) parallel output interface
  • MIPI interface (two lanes)
  • Support for second camera interface
  • 32 bytes of embedded one-time programmable (OTP) memory
  • On-chip phase lock loop (PLL)
  • Embedded 1.5V regulator for core power
  • Programmable I/O drive capability, I/O tri-state configurability
  • Support for black sun cancellation
