Actlight Continues Work on its Single Photon Sensitivity Technology for "Leading Sensor Company"

PRNewswire: ActLight has signed the second service agreement based on its Single Photon Sensitivity technology with a leading company in the image sensor market.

'This agreement is the natural continuation of the customer project started in 2020 and successfully completed earlier this year. We are very pleased to continue the joint activities with a market player of this caliber and to add value to their technology roadmap,' said Serguei Okhonin, Co-founder and CEO at ActLight. 'The adoption of Single Photon Avalanche Diode (SPAD) array in 3D sensing applications is today a growing reality and the markets are demanding performance improvements (e.g. pixel scaling, higher QE at near IR and higher performance/costs ratio). ActLight technology is developed to address these specific needs and, thanks to its unique features such as tunable sensitivity, low voltage and digital read-out, is perfectly suited to become the sensing solution of reference for 3D systems used in smartphones, cars and other mainstream products.`
