TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, today announced it will participate at the Image Sensors 2013 conference in London to showcase its advanced CMOS image sensor (CIS) solutions and expanded pixel offering for the fast growing X-ray, high-end photography, industrial, and automotive applications. According to Yole Developpement’s 2012 CMOS image sensor report, the high-end sensors market revenue is predicted to maintain an average annual CAGR of 13%.
TowerJazz offers pixels with improved sensitivity and resolution in NIR (Near Infra-Red) which are attractive for automotive driver assistance sensors and 3D gesture control applications. In addition, the foundry now offers small global shutter pixels on 0.11um CIS hybrid process that includes a thin optical stack solution for improved angular response.
“TowerJazz is the leading specialty foundry serving the majority of Europe for specialty CMOS image sensors and a substantial portion of the US and Asia Pacific. As such, we support our customers’ roadmaps by developing solutions tailored to their needs. Also, we offer production capabilities in three geographical regions which helps mitigate any production risk,” said Dr. Avi Strum, Vice President and General Manager, CMOS Image Sensor Business Unit and Vice President of Sales for Europe. “We expect that high-end photography customers will find the outstanding low levels of defective pixels offered in our facility in Nishiwaki, Japan very attractive for DSLR products.”
