High-Dynamic-Range (HDR) imaging and Near Infrared (NIR) technology is critical for autonomous vehicles to safely navigate in all weather and ambient conditions. Machine vision requires sensors that provide higher resolutions, longer wavelengths, 3D capabilities HDR imaging and, global shutters.
TSMC's CIS technology enables higher resolution, HDR and Global shutters that are imperatives in fully autonomous vehicles. Our high QE(Quantum Efficiency) NIR technology enhances vehicle night vision. NIR+ at visible wavelength and longer wavelength are being added to the portfolio to make Lidar sensor feasible.
