OmniVision today announced the OV2722, a new CMOS sensor for smartphones, tablets, and ultrabooks. The OV2722 is an update to last year's OV2720 and uses the company's new 1.4-micron OmniBSI (back-side illumination) pixel architecture that it says improves low-light sensitivity, improves image quality, and fits in a module less than 3mm high. It captures 1080p HD video at 30 frames per second or 720p HD video at 60 frames per second. The chip is the exact same size as the previous generation chip and can be dropped into existing designs. The OV2722 only shoots 2 megapixel pictures, but can be built into the thinnest device designs. The chip is already in production.
