OMNIVISION Introduces New 5MP Automotive TheiaCel Image Sensor

To be showcased at AutoSens Detroit, the OX05D10 is a high–dynamic range image sensor with TheiaCel technology that mitigates LED flicker regardless of lighting condition

OMNIVISION, a leading global developer of semiconductor solutions, including advanced digital imaging, analog and touch & display technology, announced the new OX05D10 5-megapixel (MP) CMOS image sensor with TheiaCel technology, which provides the industry’s leading LED flicker mitigation (LFM) without sacrificing image quality. The OX05D10 image sensor is ideal for all automotive use cases where high dynamic range (HDR), low-light performance and LFM are critical. It will be showcased at AutoSens Detroit, taking place May 21-23, 2024, in Detroit.

“The new OX05D10 is the latest addition to our family of automotive sensors that feature TheiaCel technology, joining the OX08D10 8MP sensor that we have announced last September at AutoSens Brussels,” said Dr. Paul Wu, head of automotive product marketing, OMNIVISION. “TheiaCel™ enables the OX05D10 to achieve high LFM without sacrificing image quality, and the OX05D10 also retains all the most important features that automotive OEMs demand, including low-light performance, small size and low power. We have expanded our product line to offer our customers the choice between 8MP and 5MP, depending on their needs.”

The increasing adoption of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD) requires improved LFM, HDR and high-resolution image sensors. For example, pulsed illumination from LED traffic lights poses a serious challenge for many imaging solutions, preventing ADAS and AD systems from correctly detecting lighted traffic signs. OMNIVISION has addressed this issue with its 2.1µm single-pixel TheiaCel™ technology. TheiaCel™ leverages next-generation LOFIC capabilities together with the proven strength of OMNIVISION’s other proprietary HDR technologies (e.g. patented DCG technology), to capture extremely high-contrast scenes for optimum content and image quality. OMNIVISION’s TheiaCel™ DCG + LOFIC solution delivers a wide dynamic range withina single-exposure HDR image.

Key features of the OX05D10 sensor include:
● 5MP sensor using the optimal HDR scheme and next-generation LFM technology:
o ~140 dB dynamic range (using VS exposure for dynamic range extension)
o >110 dB LFM and motion free dynamic range (single exposure HDR: DCG + LOFIC)
● PureCel®Plus-S technology, renowned for its low-light sensitivity and the industry’s leading signal-to-noise ratio performance
● Best-in-class power consumption
● Stability over temperature range
● Cybersecurity and ASIL B
● Support for 4-lane MIPI CSI-2
● a-CSP™ package technology for the smallest possible camera solution

Samples of the OX05D10 are available now, and it will be in mass production in Q3 2025. For more information, contact an OMNIVISION sales representative at, or visit OMNIVISION at AutoSens Detroit, Booth 207.
