The smallest photographic matrix in the world. She will take pictures of our organs

The Guinness record has just been broken in the miniaturization of the matrix and the whole camera. The record sensor is just over half a millimeter in size.

This baby was developed by OmniVision, the second manufacturer of camera matrices after Sony. The company is little known in consumer plaster because it focuses on areas such as medicine, automotive, monitoring and IoT. The latest OmniVision matrix has just broken the Guinness record.

The new matrix is ​​only 0.575 mm in size.

The new OmniVision matrix is called OV6948 and is already on the Guinness record list . The sensor is extremely small and measures just 0.575 x 0.575 x 0.232 mm. It is a BSI CMOS sensor with a resolution of 200 x 200 pixels, or in other words, 40 kilopixels. Very interesting, rarely used unit. For standardization, I will say that it is 0.04 megapixels.

But what would a small sensor be without a tiny camera? OmniVision also thought about the packaging , i.e. a full photographic module that also hides a 120 degree lens. The entire camera module is only 0.65 x 0.65 x 1.158 mm. This camera allows you to record video in 30 fps, and the focus can be set in the range from 3 to 30 mm.

This baby will be used in medicine.

The new camera module will allow you to build endoscopes with a tip smaller than 1 mm. Such equipment can be used in many fields of medicine, including in neurology, ophthalmology, ENT, cardiology, urology and gynecology.

The producer did not show any samples from the camera, but claims that the quality is very good thanks to the BSI CMOS sensor. This resulted in very low image noise and lower heating of the entire component.

The matrix and the entire photographic module are final products that are ready for sale and implementation in medical devices. And although the resolution of 200 x 200 pixels does not look encouraging looking from the perspective of the consumer market, the equipment in its class offers high image quality.

And that's innovation! OmniVision shows how far today's technology goes. Miniaturization at such an extreme level seems unbelievable, but it is real. The most enjoyable fact is that we see not a prototype, but a finished product. This immediately raises another question: what then lies in the OmniVision drawing boards? This company will surprise us more than once.
