The 1/3.2-inch OV12830 fits into the industry-standard 8.5x8.5mm module size. The OV12830 supports an active array of 4,224x3,000 pixels (12-megapixel) operating at 24 FPS, and 4,224x2,376 pixels (10-megapixel in a 16:9 aspect ratio) at 30 FPS, minimizing shutter lag from shot-to-shot. An on-chip RAW scaler allows the sensor to record video at 30 FPS while maintaining full field of view. Additionally, the OV12830 is capable of capturing full 1080p HD video with increased sensitivity for low-light recording, and at 60 FPS with additional pixels for EIS. The sensor provides alternate row output from full-resolution at two different exposures, enabling high-dynamic range (HDR) still or video recording. The OV12830 comes in die format with industry standard 4-lane MIPI interface connectivity. It is currently available for sampling, and is expected to enter volume production in the fourth quarter of 2012.
