POLYN Technology (Caesarea, Israel) and Fraunhofer Mikroelektronik will develop a special process optimisation as a part of POLYN’s next-generation Neuromorphic Analog Signal Processor (NASP) roadmap. The two companies’ project, accepted by the EU-funded ASCENT+ Consortium, enables access to key European infrastructures and helps academic and industry researchers address emerging challenges in nanoelectronics to accelerate innovation.
Isorg (Limoges, France), a pioneer in organic photo detectors (OPDs) and large-area image sensors, has announced the appointment of Dieter May as CEO; to transform the company from an SME into a major corporation. He takes over from Isorg founder JeanYves Gomez, who has successfully led Isorg’s technological and industrial development since its creation in 2010. Gomez will now devote his time to driving future generations of technology as chief innovation officer.
Buhler Leybold Optics (Alzenau, Germany), a supplier of cutting-edge thin-film vacuum coaters and imec (Leuven, Belgium), a world-leading research and innovation center in nanoelectronics, have qualified Buhler’s HELIOS 800 tool to meet the stringent standards of the semiconductor industry and developed high performance filters for optical image sensors. The enhanced tool opens up many new applications that require a precise deposition of high-quality optical stacks at high manufacturing speed. The development is going to lead to a new generation of high-resolution low-cost hyperspectral imaging sensors.
