On May 1st, 2014 IMS CHIPS joined the SITARA consortium consisting six industry partners as well as Fraunhofer IOF, the Institute of Applied Physics at FSU Jena and the Leibniz-Institut fÃ¼r innovative Mikroelektronik. As part of the SITARA project IMS CHIPS will develop CMOS image sensors for new intelligent multi aperture camera modules.
The aim of the project is the development of cost-effective, intelligent and powerful cameras with a high-dynamic range as well as ashort face-to-face dimension of less than 3 mm. These outstanding properties are to be realized by developing synchronized high-dynamic range image sensors and special micro-optical systems.. Using micro and nano structuring technology, the optical components developed as demonstrators will be comparable to the naturally occurring compound eye.
