cmos & image guide endoscopes

In the construction of endoscopes with distal end complimentary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) sensors, Precision Optics Corporation (POC) has utilized our proprietary micro lens design and manufacturing capabilities to build camera assemblies using a variety of different CMOS sensors including the OmniVision OV6946 (1 x 1 mm, 160,000 pixels), OmniVision OV6930 (1.8 x 1.8mm, 160,000 pixels) and now the OV6948 (0.58 x 0.58 mm, 40,000 pixels). POC has the in-house ability to custom manufacture to your specific needs and specifications.

The outside diameter (OD) of the CMOS camera assembly utilizing the OV6948, 0.58 mm square sensor is just under 1.0 mm diameter and a CMOS endoscope constructed with the OV6946 1 mm square sensor is 1.6 mm, the OV6930 1.8 mm square sensor is 2.8 mm. All sensors have standard 2 meter cable lengths, although, POC works with production requirements based on a variety of lengths from 0.5 to over 3 meters.

We are pleased to announce the OV6930 micro-camera module system is available for immediate delivery. The outline drawing with part numbers is 8581-900.

These micro-camera modules are available as a standalone sub-assembly or as a component in a custom medical device designed by POC to customer-supplied specifications. With over 30 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of optics-based medical devices, POC is uniquely qualified to help you incorporate these new CMOS camera modules into a custom medical device that will satisfy your unique requirements. The POC CMOS image sensor modules can be designed as a very cost efficient solution for single use applications.
