Presto Sees $500M Opprotunity in CIS Production Management

BusinessWire: Presto Engineering, an outsourced operations provider to semiconductor device manufacturers, now offers a turnkey industrialization service for image sensors.

Larger-volume CIS vendors typically keep their manufacturing operations in-house. However, a fragmented market at medium volumes, perhaps as large as $500M aggregated across all segments, provides significant opportunities for fabless CIS companies who can benefit greatly from outsourced test and characterization solutions.

Presto’s IP750Ex test solution provides a large (80x100mm), uniform (+/-2%), high-intensity illumination field at a range of temperatures. Its highly parallel test capability for complex devices (as large as 32M pixels at speeds up to 200MHz) enables fast ramps without compromising cost-of-test. Its extension into IR and its ability to test 12-, 8- and 6-inch wafers across the full automotive temperature range (-40°C to +150°C) qualifies it uniquely for automotive vision integrated circuits (ICs).

Philippe Rommeveaux, CEO of France-based Pyxalis states, “Pyxalis is very excited to use Presto Engineering and its state-of-the-art imaging platform to test custom image sensors. Local support and interaction make this solution very efficient.

Presto Engineering provides outsourced operations from wafer procurement through final product shipment, and much more. The image sensor program and cleanroom facility are located in Meyreuil, France, near Aix-en-Provence.
