Pixim, a provider of image sensors and processors for enterprise security cameras, has become the exclusive, worldwide distributor for Kiwi Semiconductor's chip for Pixim's product offering. By integrating multiple discrete components, the Kiwi chip increases the flexibility of system designers to develop compact Pixim camera modules by optimizing overall cost/performance and manufacturability.
As exclusive worldwide distributor, Pixim will simplify the design, support, and purchasing process for its customers. Further, Pixim will be able to directly release and support reference designs and modules based on the Kiwi product.
"Pixim's camera customers will find Kiwi chip a valuable solution," said Luc Lussier, CEO, Kiwi Semiconductor. "Jointly defined with Pixim's application experts, Kiwi chip creates a smaller PC board footprint by replacing a large number of devices on Pixim camera modules."
