FRAMOS product range continues to expandCamberley, UK, 25th May 2011 – Image processing specialist FRAMOS and Swiss CMOS design pioneer Photonfocus AG recently entered into a co-operative agreement.

As a pioneering and innovative designer of CMOS sensors, Photonfocus has, over the last ten years established a presence in the market for industrial image processing. With its LinLog® patent, allowing linear and logarithmic characterisation of pixels, Photonfocus sets the standard with high-dynamic ranges up to 120 dB.

Dr Peter Maria Schwider, one of Photonfocus’ founders, tells us: “The properties of our pixel design are in high demand especially in high-intensity light situations, with reflective materials and surfaces. Our customers also favour the ‘global shutter technology’ of our sensors.” In addition, the individual pixel displays a very high saturation capacity (full well capacity), resulting in an excellent signal/noise ratio.

Marcel Krist, CEO of Photonfocus, points out that sensor properties such as speed, high resolution and high quantum efficiency have always been key parameters in the design of Photonfocus sensors. Today, the company can provide CMOS sensors from 1 to 4 MP resolution, with black/white, colour or near-infrared (NIR) imaging and various different pixel sizes.

Regarding the co-operative agreement, Krist commented, “We are delighted to have found a strong sales partner for our products in FRAMOS. As a specialist for sensors, FRAMOS is an ideal match for Photonfocus’ high-performance sensors. We can now concentrate on our core competences of sensor and camera design and can significantly and rapidly expand our product range.”

Photonfocus sensors and cameras are employed predominantly in the following industries: automobile manufacture, wood processing, medical technology, packaging, measuring, traffic, transport, sports and the military.
