Framos signs distribution agreement with Photonfocus

Share this on social media:

Framos has entered into a distribution agreement with Swiss company Photonfocus. As a pioneering and innovative designer of CMOS sensors, Photonfocus has an established presence in the market for industrial image processing for the past ten years.

The company's LinLog patent allows linear and logarithmic characterisation of pixels, which provides high dynamic ranges up to 120dB.

Dr Peter Maria Schwider, one of Photonfocus' founders, said: 'The properties of our pixel design are in high demand especially in high-intensity light situations, with reflecting material and surfaces. Our customers also favour our sensors' global shutter technology.'

In addition, the individual pixel displays a very high saturation capacity (full well capacity), resulting in an excellent signal-to-noise ratio. The company can provide CMOS sensors from 1 to 4 Megapixel resolution, with monochrome, colour or near-infrared (NIR) imaging and various different pixel sizes.

Photonfocus sensors and cameras are employed predominantly in automobile manufacture, wood processing, medical technology, packaging, measuring, traffic, transport, sports and the military.

Photonfocus' CEO, Marcel Krist, commented: 'We are delighted to have found a strong sales partner for our products in Framos. As a specialist for sensors, Framos is an ideal match for Photonfocus' high-performance sensors. We can now concentrate on our core competences of sensor and camera design and can significantly and rapidly expand our product range.'
