Himax Imaging, Inc, which happens to be a subsidiary of Himax Technologies, Inc. (ADR) (NASDAQ:HIMX) today made public the unveiling of the UltraSenseIR™HM1062 HD sensor. The sensor has abilities to deliver 44% quantum efficiency in the Near Infrared spectrum, leading to a wide array of eye-safe computer vision applications for compact devices such as drones, wearable devices, front facing cameras and the various embedded gadgets. Himax Imaging, Inc is a high end supplier and fables manufacturer of display drivers and a wide range of the semiconductor devices.
Excellent NIR sensitivity associated with minimal noise performance is crucial for top end image data acquisition and it is important to clearly outline that this property gives room for the computer vision systems to process as well as carry out a proper analysis of the image data. It does that in a very effective fashion and the fact that it is able to go as far as capturing data that would otherwise have been undetectable with a lower sensitivity sensor.
The CTO of Himax Imaging, Amit Mittra in a statement said that during the instance of an active light system, the laser diodes usually play a major role in the projection of patterns that are superimposed on to the scene and the computer vision algorithms move ahead to decode them.
The Himax UltraSenseIR™ NIR sensitivity facilitates the toning down of the laser output power which can significantly enhance the eye safety of the device. It is also important to mention the great feedback obtained from the company’s partners in line with the growing UltraSenseIR™ product line.
The renowned company boasts of a number of recent advancements in system performance. Additionally, it comes by as an opportunity to cut down on the system cost, mechanical dimensions and power.
In the current times, most of the related high end companies have narrowed their focus to placing more elements as well as intelligence into the minute devices such as handsets, laptops, tablets, surveillance and internet of things.
