Two organic photodetector (OPD) firms, Isorg and Sumitomo Chemical, have signed an agreement to develop OPD products for hybrid organic CMOS image sensors and smartphone fingerprint sensors.
French firm Isorg, a producer of organic photodetectors and large-area image sensors, will license its technology processes to its OEMs, while Japan-based Sumitomo Chemical will manufacture the organic semiconductor material, as well as support Isorg in terms of production technology and marketing.
The collaboration aims to provide OEMs with materials and technology processing solutions to bring CMOS and fingerprint sensors to market.
The hybrid organic CMOS sensors are intended for use in cameras, including those designed for near infrared capabilities. Sumitomo Chemical and Isorg anticipate that these sensors will meet the performance and quality standards necessary for application in the security, automotive, diagnostics and consumer electronics markets.
‘Partnering with Isorg will allow us to fill a void in the market for difficult-to-manufacture, but affordable, full-size fingerprint and CMOS image sensors that are suitable for demanding applications in smartphone displays and hybrid visible and near infrared cameras,' said Hiroshi Ueda, executive vice president at Sumitomo Chemical. ‘Sumitomo Chemical is leveraging its materials platform to seize new opportunities for growth in the imager arena.'
AngelTech Online Summit - Tuesday 19th May
The health and well-being of AngelTech speakers, partners, employees and the overall community is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO and other relevant entities, AngelTech decided to postpone the live Brussels event to 16th - 18th November 2020.
In the interim, we believe it is still important to connect the community and we want to do this via an online summit, taking place live on Tuesday May 19th at 12:00 GMT
and content available for 12 months on demand. This will not replace the live event (we believe live face to face interaction, learning and networking can never be fully replaced by a virtual summit), it will supplement the event, add value for key players and bring the community together – digitally.
The event will involve 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines.
Key elements of the online summit:
- Covering key topics of the industries
- Live 3 hour online summit
- 10 minute presentations – learn from experts in the industry
- Recorded product demos
- Live audience questions
- Enhanced discussion and audience interaction
- Video panel sessions
- Sponsors digital booth (intro video, company content, lead generator, facilitate one on one video meetings with attendees)
- Live private video meetings between two or more attendees
- After the live event, monthly keynotes to drive traffic to the event 24/7, 365
Innovation is in AngelTech’s DNA and we are leveraging this strength to bring you an immersive and inspiring online event without the risk of travel during this uncertain period.
