OMNIVISION Debuts OX01E20 Automotive SoC for Surround View Systems & Rear-View Cameras

OMNIVISION has unveiled its 1.3-megapixel OX01E20 automotive SoC for 360-degree surround view systems and rear-view cameras. During an announcement at CES 2023, OMNIVISION said the OX01E20 is pin2pin compatible with current-generation 1.3MP designs, providing top-of-the-line LED flicker mitigation and 140db high dynamic range across the entire automotive temperature gamut. 

“Content per vehicle continues to drive growth within the ADAS market,” said Mark Fitzgerald, Director of Autonomous Vehicle Research, Strategy Analytics, powered by TechInsights. “Surround and rear-view camera solutions that offer high performance and low power, with a small package size, are attractive to OEMs looking to offer convenient ADAS solutions to customers.” 

OX01E20 Specifications & Performance

The OX01E20 was engineered to provide optimum performance for surround-view systems and rear-view cameras, especially with regard to challenging lighting conditions. Key OX01E20 features include a single 1/4-inch optical format package, a three-micron image sensor, an advanced image signal processor, full-featured distortion correction/perspective correction, and an on-screen display. 

By leveraging its PureCel Plus architecture, OMNIVISION said the OX01E20 delivers ideal signal-to-noise ratio performance, a compact form factor, lower power consumption, and lower cost. (OMNIVISION’s PureCel Plus-S stacked die technology is also at the heart of the OX03D4C, a three-megapixel resolution SoC for automotive surround-view systems, announced during CES 2022). 

“Automotive OEMs want the most superior LED flicker mitigation, high dynamic range, and low-light performance for their next-generation vehicles, and we’ve designed the new OX01E20 SoC to meet their needs,” said Paul Wu, Automotive Staff Marketing Manager at OMNIVISION. “The OX01E20 is pin2pin compatible with our previous-generation 1.3MP automotive SoCs for a fast and easy upgrade to higher performance.”

OX01E20 Availability

The OX01E20 is ASIL-B safety compliant. It is sampling now and will be in mass production in June 2023.
