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 pixel-level stacking 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 NIR+ Gen2 at longer wavelength are being added to the portfolio, to make 940nm/1550nm Lidar sensor feasible.
