About Image Sensors

Image sensors are key components for a variety of applications. With the rise in sophisticated safety and visual features in automotive applications, the number of chips required in vehicles proportionally increases. This trend is driving the exponential demand for image sensor chips. To cater to the ultra clean manufacturing environment for these chips, manufacturing floors must meet class 10/100 cleanroom standards to prevent contamination to the chips.
