Pixim Acquires Image Sensor Innovator Advasense Technologies
Pixim | Date:
Pixim, a provider of imaging chips for enterprise security cameras, acquired Advasense Technologies, a developer of next-generation CMOS technology located in Ra'anana, Israel. Advasense was founded with the vision of improving the image quality of cameras used in mobile applications.
Currently, Pixim is experiencing exponential sales growth driven by the latest chip product. The Advasense team complements Pixim in the areas of image sensor-specific product design and will be immediately integrated into Pixim's existing product development organization. This addition to Pixim's engineering team is expected to allow the company to further accelerate its strong sales growth.
The technology of the two companies is highly complementary. The current push for HD cameras in the video security market demands higher-performance small pixels that do not compromise image quality. Advasense's development of deep photodiodes significantly enhances pixel well capacity, improving image quality in all lighting conditions even as pixel sizes get smaller.
