TriEye reveals Tower as SWIR sensor partner

TriEye Technologies Ltd. (Tel Aviv, Israel) has announced that Tower Semiconductor Ltd. is its foundry partner for its shortwave infrared (SWIR) sensor for the automotive ADAS and industrial markets.

The sensor incorporates 1.3 million pixels on 7-micron pitch made using Tower’s back-side illuminated germanium photodiode technology. The process includes a pixel-level electrical connection in a wafer stacking process that allows a monolithic CMOS-based solution for sensing light at wavelengths beyond the capability of silicon.

TriEye’s sensing solution provides copes with very low light, severe fog, dust, or smoke conditions, the company claims.

Existing SWIR sensors are inherently expensive and therefore not usually considered for mass markets, TriEye’s SWIR CMOS-based solution provides performance at low cost, and can be deployed in high-volume markets such as automotive ADAS.

“We have been working closely with TriEye over the past several years on the development of their innovative sensor. As always, it is exciting to see the successful results of this teamwork being realized into its market potential,” said Avi Strum, general manager of Tower’s sensors and displays business unit. “Collaborating with TriEye’s pioneering team of experts in the field of SWIR sensing solutions was an exceptionally fruitful process. We are confident that this advanced sensing solution with its market-leading features sets a solid foundation for future developments and will contribute greatly to the infrared imaging market.”
