AWAIBA focusses on the turn key development of speciality image sensors in medical imaging and computer vision. Additional important markets for AWAIBA’s image sensor expertise include industrial automation and quality control, also known as ‘robot vision’; the automotive sector, namely on-board cameras for comfort and security applications. Lastly, in the medical field, AWAIBA offers unique know how in the development of miniaturized cameras for micro-invasive surgery.

Besides CMOS image sensor design AWAIBA’s Intellectual Property provides experiences in the field of packaging for CMOS image sensors, particularly Chip On Board (COB), Flip Chip and Chip Scale Packages (CSP) based on Wafer Level processes. AWAIBA has also pioneered the integration of TSV (Through Silicon Via) packaging technology with Wafer level optics to fully wafer level (Wafer to Wafer) assembled camera modules.

In the area of optics, depending on the application, lens systems made from either glass, or plastics can be made, with spherical, aspherical or diffractive properties. AWAIBA’s experience extends to Wafer Level optics integration, which permits true “system in a package” solutions thus enabling it to offer extreme reductions in both size and cost.

Such highly integrated vision modules require careful control and management of the supply chain. AWAIBA therefore has invested in the capacity to be able to offer it’s customers to manage production and testing on their behalf.
