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


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

The updated version reads:


OG0VE is a 3.0 µm pixel global shutter sensor that is 26% smaller and more than 50% more energy efficient than its predecessor

OMNIVISION, a leading global developer of semiconductor solutionsincluding advanced digital, analog and digital imaging touch & display technologytoday announced the OG0VE Global Shutter (GS) image sensor – a small form factor, high sensitivity device for AR/VR/MR, metaverse, drone, computer vision, and barcode scanner products. This next-generation image sensor is 26% smaller and more than 50% more 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 enable it to be used for any application that requires simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), gesture sensing, head and eye tracking, and depth and movement. It has a resolution of 640 x 480 with a package size of just 3.6mm x 2.7mm and comes in a 1/7.5-inch optical format. It has very low power consumption, less than 34mW when running at 60 frames per second (fps) with VGA.

“The OG0VE was designed to meet the high market demand for smaller, more energy-efficient cameras for AR/VR devices, particularly as battery-powered AR/VR devices require multiple cameras for SLAM, pass-through, and tracking in limited space. The OG0VE image sensor meets the needs of the market with the best GS image sensor technology from OMNIVISION,” said David Shin, Head of Personnel Product Marketing, OMNIVISION. especially suited for the small form factor design flexibility in traditional AR/VR/MR headsets and glasses.”

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

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