(ORDO NEWS) — California-based technology company Omnivision has unveiled its latest masterpiece, the OVM6948 CameraCubeChip. This amazingly small camera has set a record for its size and opens new horizons in the field of medical technology.

With dimensions of just 0.65 x 0.65 mm and a height of 1,158 mm, this camera is surprisingly compact. It is based on the tiny OVM6948 sensor, which is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the world‘s smallest commercially available image sensor.

The main feature of the OVM6948 CameraCubeChip is its versatility. The camera can be mounted on a variety of medical instruments, including disposable guides, endoscopes and catheters, which are as small as 1.0mm in diameter. This means that it becomes an indispensable tool for neurological, ophthalmological, ENT, cardiac, spinal, urological, gynecological and arthroscopic procedures.

But its small size doesn’t stop this camera from achieving a high resolution of 200 x 200 pixels with back illumination. This allows high-quality images to be obtained in the most sensitive areas of the human body. It’s also the world’s only back-lit camera, delivering superior low-light performance and helping reduce LED heat.

According to the official Omnivision website, due to the low power consumption of the camera, less heat is generated at the distal end of the endoscope. This increases patient comfort and allows for longer procedures.

The world’s smallest camera also features a wide 120-degree field of view and an extended focusing range of 3mm to 30mm. It is capable of recording video at up to 30 frames per second, and its analog output allows you to transmit images over a distance of more than 4 meters with minimal noise.
