Himax Launches Ultra-Low Power CMOS Image Sensor for Always On Computer Vision Applications

TAINAN, Taiwan, Jan. 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Himax Imaging, Inc., a subsidiary of Himax Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:HIMX) (“Himax” or the “Company”), a leading supplier and fabless manufacturer of display drivers and other semiconductor products, today announced the HM01B0, an ultra-low power QVGA CMOS Image Sensor that consumes less than 700µW when operating at QQVGA resolution of 30 Frames Per Second (FPS), and less than 2mW when operating at QVGA resolution with support for even lower power modes. Himax is planning to deliver samples to selected customers and partners in the first quarter of 2016. The HM01B0 ultra-low power consumption allows the sensor to be placed in a constant state of operation, enabling “always on”, contextually aware, computer vision capabilities such as feature extraction, proximity sensing, gesture recognition, object tracking…
