Stacking BSI Technology, iToF and dTOF for Face Recognition and Next-Generation Global Shutter Technology

Followed by a joint presentation with Forza on Planning and Development of a Successful CMOS Image Sensor Project 

Japan session in Japanese by Isao Miyanaga

*Login links are accessible 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the webinar for registered guests only.


One of the most fascinating development in today’s imaging market is global shutter sensor technology with enhanced performance for end applications in both the industrial and consumer markets. Such performance is made available by Tower’s world-leading 2.5um global shutter pixel technology enabling very high shutter efficiency almost independent on light angle and with high quantum efficiency. This advanced pixel offering, combined with our newly introduced BSI stacking technology, provides the capability to design state of the art, innovative sensors that bring breakthrough solutions to the market. During this session we will present our platform for BSI devices as well as our current offering for Visible Light, Tower’s PDK, and mode of work / pixel IP support. In addition, we will discuss out platform for NIR QE enhancement, and present current enhancement and results as well as future roadmap. In addition, we will present results from three different BSI devices – iTOF, dTOF and 1” high performance sensors. 

Planning and Development of a Successful CMOS Image Sensor Project with Your Foundry and Design Partners

Good project planning can’t completely eliminate risk but it can help deal with surprises that inevitably arise – even with the best laid plans. This presentation will describe what makes CMOS Image Sensor development different from other mixed-signal designs and discuss how to create the cornerstone of a successful design – the Specifications document.
