Following this year´s 22nd International Trade Fair for Machine Vision and Identification Technologies on November 6th, 2009, the Institut für Mikroelektronik Stuttgart will hold the first Hidralon workshop with the industrial partners of the User Group accompanying the project.
With an expected runtime of about 3 years the HiDRaLoN - High Dynamic Range and Low Noise CMOS Image Sensors project submitted within the frame of the European sponsored program CATRENE was launched on March 1st, 2009. In Germany the project is supported by the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF).
The European consortium consists of 16 project partners (research facilities and companies) from Germany, France, the Netherlands, Israel and Hungary. Of the German partners in the consortium 4 are CMOS sensor developers: Institut für Mikroelektronik Stuttgart (IMS CHIPS), Deutsche Thomson oHG, Fraunhofer-Institut für Mikroelektronische Schaltungen und Systeme and Philips Technologie GmbH Forschungslaboratorien. Accompanying the project a user group currently stemming from 12 industrial companies made of potential project result end users will be set up.
