Design of a 16.5 Megapixel Camera Lens for a Mobile Phone


A 16.5 megapixel camera lens for a mobile phone is designed. The lens consists of 3 plastic aspheric lenses, one glass spheric lens and an infrared glass filter. CMOS OV16850 with a pixel size of 1.12 micrometers from Omni Vision is used as an image sensor. The lens has an effective focal length of 4.483 mm, a F-number of 2.50, a field-of-view (FOV) of 76.2 degree, and a total length of 5.873 mm. The maximum distortion of the lens is less than 2.0%. The minimum value of all field relative illumination is over 39.8%.
