OmniVision and Artilux announce collaboration on NIR 3D imaging and more
OmniVision, an industry leading developer of high performance CMOS image sensor solutions, and Artilux, the pioneer of wide spectrum 3D sensing technology based on GeSi photonics, jointly announced their execution of a formal letter of intent to collaborate in the field of CMOS image sensors and GeSi based 3D sensors, after a series of evaluation and analysis.
Unfolding new dimensions of CMOS SWIR imaging
Artilux, the pioneer of wide spectrum 3D sensing technology based on GeSi photonics, announced today the world’s first single-chip CMOS-based GeSi imager for a compact dual-mode (2D/3D) SWIR (Shortwave Infrared) sensing & imaging system. The high-resolution GeSi imager is fabricated at TSMC 12-inch CMOS production line, and is ready for commercialization at scale, enabling an ever-growing ecosystem to mark the beginning of SWIR sensing and imaging for consumer markets.
Artilux announces new GeSi 3D sensing technology to improve eye safety and outdoor user experiences
Artilux, an innovator in optical and electronics technology, announces its new Artilux Explore Series for wide spectrum 3D sensing. By operating at longer wavelength light than conventional solutions, the new Explore Series delivers exceptional accuracy, reduces the risk of eye damage and minimizes sunlight interference, enabling a consistent outdoor-indoor user experience. The breakthrough is based on a new GeSi technology platform developed by Artilux in cooperation with TSMC.
Artilux unveils world's first GeSi wide spectrum 3D sensor at CES
At CES 2020, Artilux, an innovator in photonics and electronics technology, will be unveiling its Explore Series, the world's first wide spectrum 3D ToF (time-of-flight) sensor based on GeSi (germanium-on-silicon) photonic innovation. Operating at longer NIR (near infrared) wavelengths, the sensor can be used in the area of the spectrum that is more than 10 times safer than the currently-used 940nm wavelength, as well as improving sensing accuracy and performance under sunlight.
