Hardware review[edit]

  • OV580: Back chip connected to Aux port is labeled OV00580-B21G-1C. The OmniVision 580 ASIC is not publicy documented (without signing a NDA with Omnivision), so it seems to have been made specially for Sony (other companies using it are Mantis Vision and LeapMotion) out of the 500/600 serie of processors.

others Omnivision USB bridge solutions: PlayStation EyeToy(OV519) and PlayStation Eye (OV534).

  • AK5703: The Front chip connected to microphone array, labeled 5703 324A, is a 4-channel 24-bit Analog-to-digital (A/D) converter packaged in a space-saving 28-pin QFN package. Datasheet is available here and here.
  • 4g51a: EEPROM is labeled as 4g51a. It contains the initial configuration for PlayStation 4 Camera.
