Ams and Vivo Unveil Broad Collaboration

Image Sensors World

BusinessWire: ams and vivo have collaborated at a strategic technology level for over five years. The collaboration has resulted in several advancements – including Behind OLED (BOLED) display optical and proximity sensing, multi-camera imaging, camera white balance and laser detection auto focus (LDAF) – with joint achievements from the cooperation implemented in many vivo smart phones.

With the popularity of 48MP cameras, the problem of slow focus speed has gradually emerged. Ams TMF8801 ToF sensor addresses this by providing accurate measurement in the 2 cm to 2.5 m range.
Mobile phone users increasingly want a full-screen phone. vivo, a leader in display advancements, cooperates extensively with ams to realize technology that optimizes display size – taking full-view display smartphones to a new level. In particular, BOLED display optical and proximity sensors play an important role. ams’ industry leading device sensitivity and supporting software algorithms, combined with sensors optimized to operate BOLED display, bring more full-view display design possibilities to vivo’s full-view display smartphone products.
Pinglu Chen, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Greater China of ams, said:
We work together with vivo to develop the smartphone sensor technology of tomorrow in the Android market. Through industry-leading optical, proximity, and imaging technologies and solutions in the field of sensors, vivo and ams have created some game-changing technology focused on full-view screens, and advanced smartphone technology and design. In future, we want to further deepen cooperation with vivo and together continue to create products that provide the best-in-class experience for consumers.
