ams and SmartSens Join Forces on 3D and NIR Sensors

July 3, 2019 Laura Dolan

ams and SmartSens Technology will be working together in the field of image sensors by collaborating on creating a 3D ASV reference design that sustains the future release of a 1.3MP Stacked BSI Global Shutter Image Sensor with state-of-the-art QE up to 40 percent at 940nm. 

The NIR sensor will expand ams’ 3D portfolio and improve overall system performance. The reference design will aid high performance depth maps for payment, face recognition and AR/VR applications. 

“This collaboration with SmartSens in Image Sensors brings customers the benefit of a faster time to market for 3D Active Stereo Vision and Structured Light applications in mobile phones and other devices including IoT applications, based on ams’ industry leading 3D technology and core IP on Voltage-Domain Global Shutter,” said ams’ EVP for the Division Image Sensor Solutions, Stéphane Curral. “The collaboration will also help accelerate time to market for exciting new automotive applications such as in-cabin 2D and 3D sensing.”

“We are pleased to partner with ams to combine our expertise in Image Sensors and NIR technology with ams’ 3D expertise and core Image Sensing IP,” said SmartSens Technology’s Chief Marketing Officer, Chris Yiu. “We believe this combination of robust technology and channel to market will provide an optimal solution to meet customer demand.”
