Himax Reports 2020 Results

GlobeNewsWire: Himax updates about its image sensor business:

"Himax sees continuous surging demands for its CMOS image sensors for web camera and notebook as the new norm of virtual conferences shows no signs of receding. However, the Company’s actual shipment has been badly capped by the foundry capacity available to it.

Separately, Himax’s industry-first 2-in-1 CMOS image sensor that supports RGB mode for video conferencing and ultralow power AI mode for facial recognition has penetrated the laptop market for the most stylish super slim bezel designs. The Company has shipped small quantity in the fourth quarter and expect to ship more during 2021.

Regarding ultralow power always-on CMOS image sensor, which targets in-battery powered or always-on applications, the Company is getting promising feedback and design adoptions from customers in various markets, such as car recorders, surveillance, smart electric meters, drones, home appliances, and consumer electronics. In Q1, the CIS revenue is expected to be up mid-single digit sequentially although the Company still cannot fulfill all the demand due to foundry capacity constraint."
