Pasadena, CA, June 04, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Forza Silicon Corporation announced today the availability of its groundbreaking proprietary FORZ-HD™ CMOS imaging technology which supports frame rates up to 60 fps, proven at 33.2 Mega-pixel resolution, and features 12-bit on-chip ADCs. FORZ-HD™ technology is targeted for high resolution, high-speed, high dynamic range digital cameras used in professional photography or digital cinematography, and in medical, biotech, scientific, satellite and defense industries.
“FORZ-HD™ is a scalable technology that produces astounding image and video quality,” said Dr. Barmak Mansoorian, President of Forza Silicon. “The FORZ-HD™ advantages over CCD image sensors include the integration of thousands of column-parallel ADCs on-chip with an LVDS or CML interface, and, of course, lower cost,” said Dr. Daniel Van Blerkom, CTO of Forza Silicon.
FORZ-HD™ imaging technology is used in CMOS image sensors fabricated by Forza foundry partner Tower Semiconductor using 0.18 micron process. FORZ-HD™ is compatible with CMOS Image Sensor processes used by Forza foundry partner IBM Microelectronics.
