Spectral sensors and camera modules

Spectricity develops, manufactures and sells spectral imagers and camera modules based on fully integrated CMOS sensors. Targeting mobile devices, the truly miniaturised sensors are enabled by patented filter technology, the fruit of 15 years of R&D. These sensors are manufactured in a high-volume CMOS foundry which allows for mass production at a low cost. Spectricity offers the only solution in the world to enable mass production of spectral imaging.

Combining high spatial and spectral resolution, snapshot images are available for video rate spectral sensing simultaneously in the visible and near-infrared range; a set of features which together is unprecedented in the field of spectral imaging.

Introducing the S1 multispectral
image sensor and camera module
for mobile devices

The S1 is world’s first truly miniaturized, mass-manufacturable mobile spectral image sensor and camera module. It features:
– 16-channel high-resolution images
– across the full visible and near-infrared range
– at video rates (30fps) required for mobile applications.
These combined features are unprecedented in the field of spectral imaging. They make the S1 well suited for intergration in a smartphone.

The miniaturised sensors are the fruit of 15 years of R&D, building on a comprehensive patent portfolio of more than 70 patents. The sensors are manufactured in a high-volume CMOS foundry which allows for mass production at a low cost.

True colors through spectral imaging AWB

Smartphone cameras are essentially color blind. Their automatic white balancing algorithms (AWB) often fail to resolve the correct white point, resulting in poor color fidelity (see the benchmark example across different lighting conditions using world’s most popular flagship phone). This is especially problematic in the presence of multiple illuminants or challenging scenes.

Spectricity’s spectral imaging AWB detects illuminants more accurately in each area of the scene through their spectral signature. This result in true colors: improved color photography, accurate unbiased skin tones and personalized cosmetics to mobile devices.
