CMOS is the future - You are on the right track with IDS

Global market leader Sony discontinues the production of CCD sensors in March 2017. We are not surprised as we decided to integrate only CMOS sensors into new camera models already in 2011. Even then, it was clear to us: CMOS is the future. So this is your chance: Switch to CMOS sensors with a trusted, experienced partner at your side and with adequate lead time. We offer you more than ten years of know-how in the development and distribution of CMOS technology. Goodbye CCD.

Our vision is to provide customers the best user experience in the vision market. With this motivation our developers work passionately day by day to get the best out of every single sensor. For even better image quality, for even higher performance and even more features and, to keep it simple, for you as our customer to deliver you the best results for your application. This opens up new perspectives for new application fields. Under the subpage "Sensor Features" you will see some IDS features  that enable individual optimization for your application.
