: OmniVision introduces the OS05A20
, the first image sensor to implement OmniVision's Nyxel NIR technology. This 5MP color image sensor leverages both the PureCel pixel and Nyxel technology and achieves a significant improvement in QE when compared with OmniVision's earlier-generation sensors. However, no QE numbers have been released so far.
Nyxel technology combines thick-silicon pixel architectures with extended DTI to improve QE up to 3x for 850nm and up to 5x for 940nm, while maintaining all other image-quality metrics.
