OmniVision Technologies' OS05A20 Image Sensor with Nyxel™ Technology
2018 Edition. In Device Technology of the Year
The OS05A20 is OmniVision's first image sensor with the new Nyxel™ technology for near-infrared (NIR) sensing, which leverages novel silicon semiconductor architectures and processes to tackle the challenges plaguing NIR image sensors. This 5-megapixel color image sensor leverages both the PureCel® pixel architecture and Nyxel technology to capture bright, crisp videos and images, day and night. The OS05A20 achieves a significant improvement in quantum efficiency when compared with OmniVision's earlier-generation sensors. As such, the OS05A20 can "see" better and farther under low- and no-light conditions, making it an ideal imaging solution for professional surveillance systems.
