Omnivision, a global developer of semiconductor solutions, announced the OH02B image sensor – a square 2-megapixel (MP, 1500 x 1500) resolution CMOS image sensor for gastrointestinal, ENT, orthopedic, surgical, dental, and veterinarian reusable and disposable endoscopes, catheters, and guide wires. It’s available in the smallest form factor 2.5 x 2.5 mm CameraCubeCjip package (OCH2B) for disposable designs. The sensor uses omnivision’s AntLink proprietary technology, which provides the thinnest 4-meter inferface connection directly from the endoscope camera to the camera control unit.

“The medical industry is moving to single-use endoscopes to minimize cross-contamination and improve patient safety. CCD-based image sensors cannot meet today’s high-performance endoscope requirements and are being phased out,” said Richard Yang, senior marketing manager, Omnivision. “CMOS image sensors, such as the OH02B, are critical for the disposable endoscope market because they enable high resolution and small size, generate very low heat at the tip of the scope design, and are cost-effective for one-time use. OMNIVISION’s CameraCubeChip design provides further size advantages and simplifies design resources and the supply chain.”
