CMOS Image Sensors
Two strong partners for LiDAR-technology of the future


LASER COMPONENTS and the Fraunhofer-Institute for Microelectronic Circuits and Systems IMS have signed a cooperation agreement and will collaborate closely in the future. Especially in the field of LiDAR technologies, both partners promise fresh impetus.

IR Imagers
Uncooled Infrared focal plane array for mid- and long-wave (MWIR+LWIR) applications

The latest generation of high sensitive uncooled IRFPAs using 320 x 256 pixels for LWIR and MWIR range achieves a significantly improved temperature measurement.

Ichó Systems


Glow, speak, vibrate – the interactive therapy ball “ichó” of the Duisburger startup ichó-systems is able to do all of this and even more – and while doing this it helps people suffering from dementia. Now, this young business is the first startup-partner of the Fraunhofer-inHaus-Center in Duisburg. The cooperation is a gain for everyone involved.

We look forward to welcoming you personally to our booth!

VISON 2018:
LiDAR Technologies:
• We will present a rover vehicle which drives autonomosly with LiDAR CMOS Technology without touching obstacles
• The SPAD-LiDAR Camera Owl for reliable and fast distance measurements
Uncooled Infrared Sensors (IRFPAs):
• The uncooled infrared sensors based on an in-house developed microbolometer process for applications in the wavelength range of 3 µm to 5 µm and 8 µm to 14 µm.
• Classification and Counting of people by high-resolution uncooled infrared sensors even in bad visible conditions e.g. darkness, fog, smoke, low sun

Electronica + SPS IPC Drives:

Complex and High-Precision Selection ASICs for inductive and capacitive sensors and wireless applications are opening new doors for Industry 4.0. The associated increasing networking in the industrial sector calls for increased data security and protection. With the "Physically Unclonable Functions" (PUF), the Fraunhofer IMS provides you with a solution to this.
