TSMC's CIS technology has gone through the evolution from FSI to BSI to NIR. Our CIS technology enable higher resolution, HDR and Global shutter, making it a powerful module for machine vision application in IoT.
NIR+ offers more than 3X boost to Quantum Efficiency reaching or exceeding 40% at NIR wavelength, attracting increased customer adoptions in fields of applications such as security camera, 3D-sensing camera etc.
The emerging applications, such as 2D/3D face recognition, smart security, smart locks, smart warehouse, face pay, cashier-free services etc., accentuate the need for IoT sensors with integrated AI and connectivity capabilities. CIS technology is the best way to integrate these technologies in one chip.
