Smartphone image sensor with de-noise technology
OmniVision Technologies has announced, in advance of CES, the OV40A, a 40MP, 1.0 micron pixel image sensor that features super high gain and de-noise technologies for low light camera performance in the 1/1.7” optical format. This sensor also offers multiple high dynamic range (HDR) options for the best quality still and video captures.
Multitouch projected capacitive technology introduced
Zytronic has announced its patented multitouch projected capacitive technology (MPCT) has been selected by Ideum, for its next-generation Pano Duo 49” interactive touch table. One of the first deployments is at the Röntgen Museum in Remscheid, Germany, where visitors can view and interact with both terrestrial and celestial objects and learn about the different wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Image sensor for IoT security cameras with Nyxel NIR
OmniVision Technologies has announced in advance of CES the OS04C10, the two micron pixel, four megapixel (MP) resolution image sensor for both IoT and home security cameras. When paired with the designer’s selected platform, the OS04C10 can enable a system ultra low power mode for battery-powered cameras with AI functionality.
Sensors get clever: AI revolutionises fitness trackers
Squats, crunches or kettlebell swings: The list of fitness exercises available nowadays is almost endless. Many fitness trackers or smartwatches, however, offer only a very limited number of activities that can be tracked and do not recognise activities reliably due to different performance styles, equipment, heights and energy levels of users.
