Image Sensor Companies in Silicon 60 List

EETimes publishes its "Silicon 60: 60 Emerging Companies to Watch" with just two image sensor related companies:

Chronocam AS (Paris, France) is a startup company founded in 2014 that develops machine vision sensors and systems based on asynchronous pixel sensor technology. The novel architecture creates an image sensor that is close to a biological model and a method of reporting image changes reduces off-chip bandwidth requirements and system power consumption. Chronocam has received seed investment from Robert Bosch Venture Capital and CEA Investissement.

Unispectral Ltd. (Ramat Gan, Israel) is developing a hyperspectral image sensor that can not only be used for spectrometric analysis of materials such as food stuffs but can also capture images in low-light. The sensor is applicable to a wide range of applications such as wearables, digital health, medical imaging, Internet of Things, industrial and agricultural applications. The company is reported to already be in negotiations with smartphone manufacturers for the inclusion of its sensor on next-generation phones. The company was founded in 2016.
