Image sensor distributor Framos and advanced custom image sensor supplier Pyxalis have extended their collaboration. After working with them for several years, Framos has now entered a formal agreement with Pyxalis. This partnership provides Framos partners with fully customized, high performance sensors, including sensor specification elaboration support, sensor architecture, design, prototyping, validation, industrialization and manufacturing using silicon imaging technologies. This technology partnership enhances Framos’ imaging solutions portfolio, which includes Sony, ON Semiconductor and Teledyne e2v.
Image sensor technology is a highly developed field where a great number of manufacturers provide the market with thousands of sensor varieties for most off-the-shelf applications. However, for high performance systems in the fields of automotive, consumer, medical and security applications, sometimes a custom design is required. Pyxalis, having already created custom sensors in these industries, represents an alternative to currently established sensors with capabilities in time of flight, super-low-noise pixels, processor-based SOCs and very high-speed or high-dynamic architectures. Camera manufacturers with the goal of creating premium products with more added value strive for customization, too. In addition, for consumer-grade products, customization is a must for companies that want to differentiate themselves from competitors with an exclusive sensor.
The Framos industry and product experts, with an in-depth knowledge from sensor to system, provide a full portfolio of imaging components and additional services like consulting and logistics, to the support of customers to obtain the benefit of customized sensors for their applications and projects.
