  7. Networking drinks reception and Image Sensors Europe Awards 2018

    Smithers Apex staff will leave the hotel at 17.15 sharp to walk down to the river before boarding the ERASMUS boat at 18.00 for a fantastic evening of informal networking and hte presentation of the Image Sensors Europe 2018 Awards. 

New sensors and functions

TRACK B - NEW SENSORS AND FUNCTIONS

  1. How to make large pixel fast

    Xuezhou Cao | Process Development Analog and Sensor Group Manager of X-FAB Semiconductor Foundaries

    • X-Fab Opto & image sensor foundry offering
    • X-Fab large pixel with fast charge transfer
    • New pixel test results
  2. Scalable self-aligned active matrix IGZO TFT backplane technology and its use in flexible semi-transparent image sensors

    Albert van Breemen | Senior Scientist of Holst Centre

    • Semi transparent image sensors
    • Scalable IGZO TFT technology
    • Organic photo detector
  3. Networking refreshment break

  4. Smart image sensors for efficient low-level feature extraction

    Ricardo Carmona-Galán | Scientist of Institute of Microelectronics of Seville

    • Increasing demand for on-site and real-time automatic scene interpretation under a restricted power budget
    • Conventional image processing chain is oriented to high-quality imaging
    • This is inefficient as pixel is converted to digital prior to processing
    • Concurrent sensing and processing can efficiently extract – or learn – relevant features
    • Chips that elaborate an adequate representation of the scene right at the sensor plane result in power efficient embedded vision systems
  5. How particular sensor functions can allow new applicative uses? Examples in 3D and hyperspectral imaging

    Philippe Rommeveaux | President and CEO of Pyxalis

    • New imaging applications have been made possible thanks to the combination of 1 or more basic image sensors, advanced algorithms and particular optical/lighting systems
    • New sensors level embedded functions and technologies can mean new performance achievements and potentially new uses
    • Applicative examples will be given in 3D measurement with an advanced global shutter sensor and in environmental analysis thanks to a hyperspectral imager
