Low-power, low-cost optical chips for applications requiring image sensing capabilities, colour, light and distance measurement, and motion control.

As part of the Centre of Applied Photonics, FORCE Technology cooperates with Presto Engineering about low-power, low-cost optical chips for various sensor applications.

Over the years, the Preso Engineering has developed image sensor chips and ICs for various sensor applications, providing low-power consumption, high sensitivity and fast image updates. The smart, single-chip optical systems have been integrated across a range of industrial environments such as IoT, motion and luminance detection, object tracking and data communication via RF links.

Benromach - a highlighy integrated System-On-Chip for vision application

A Benromach is a low power and low-resolution vision chip. A vision chip is very similar to a CMOS imaging chip, which is the main component of any camera.

A CMOS imagers task is essentially to convert photons hitting the pixel area into electrons. These electrons form a charge, which is converted by a capacitor to a voltage. This voltage is then being amplified and digitized, resulting in a digital grey value.

In a camera, the digital grey value is displayed on a screen to form an image for the human observer to see. In contrast to a traditional camera, the purpose of a vision chip is to gain a high-level understanding of the image.
