This video features the First Sensor Embedded Area View system for the mobility market. The system includes side view, rear view and front view capabilities with 190° angles, 2 Mpx resolution, and CMOS and HDR technologies for a total area view of 360°.
First Sensor Group, the world's leading supplier in the field of sensor systems, closed fiscal 2017 successfully. As previously announced, sales amounted to EUR147.5 million and were therefore just 2% above the planned range of EUR140 and EUR145 million. Due to a more dynamic second half of the year, the EBIT margin ultimately reached 7.2%. This means that the originally planned range of 5 to 6% was considerably exceeded.
First Sensor AG, a developer and manufacturer of standard products and customer-specific solutions on the growth market of sensor technology, is taking the next step towards volume production of cameras for driver assistance systems and adding the "Blue Next" industrialized camera generation to its product range.
According to provisional figures, the First Sensor Group closed fiscal year 2017 very successfully. Sales amounts to EUR147.5 million, almost 2% above the planned range of EUR140 million and EUR145 million. Due to a more dynamic second half of the year, the operating result (EBIT margin) comes up to 7.1%. It thus considerably exceeds the originally planned level of 5% to 6%. The full consolidated financial statements will be published on March 22, 2018.
First Sensor AG, a developer and manufacturer of standard products and customer-specific solutions on the growth market of sensor technology, has produced its 10 millionth pressure sensor for the control of braking systems for a major German original equipment manufacturer. The sensors are installed in almost all gasoline-engined models of the group's brands. The order was confirmed last year and now covers the period up until 2021 with an anticipated annual sales volume of up to EUR 8 million.
The new Series 9.5 avalanche photodiodes from First Sensor feature an increased sensitivity in the near infrared (NIR) wavelength range up to 950 nm. Due to its fast rise time and very low dark current the photodiodes are ideal for applications with low light intensities and high modulation frequencies such as laser rangefinding and laser scanning.
On the occasion of LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA, Asia’s leading photonics trade fair, the management team of First Sensor AG embarked on an eight-day trip to Asia last Wednesday. Until March 17, 2016, the Berlin-based sensor system company will be showcasing its latest products for the Asian market and discussing the latest technologies and trends with local experts.
In San Francisco, from February 16 to 18, 2016, the Berlin-based sensor technology company showcased its new innovations in the field of optics and discussing trends and technologies with experts and scientists from around the world.
Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) are radiation detectors designed with extremely high sensitivity, high efficiency, and very low time jitter. The technology is based on reversed biased p/n diodes, making them capable of direct light detection ranging from near ultra violet to near infrared.
First Sensor is one of the world’s leading providers of high-quality certified sensor solutions. With their headquarters in Berlin, Germany, the company has sales and production locations in the USA, Canada, Singapore, the UK, France, Sweden, Denmark, and the Netherlands.
First Sensor’s mobility capabilities accompany the automotive industry in new era of smart mobility. With innovative pressure sensors and cameras designed to withstand the toughest conditions, First Sensor is able to adapt and optimize their products to individual requirements and applications.
First Sensor's medical capabilities offer more effective and safer medical devices, while simplifying their operation. All sensors work in accordance with certified processes and procedures in the measurement of pressure, flow, liquid levels, oxygen, light, radiation, and acceleration.
First Sensor’s industrial capabilities offer a wide variety of high-quality sensor solutions that are easily adaptable to specific requirements and applications. In the many parameters of industrial applications, sensors will often form the core element in products and solutions.
Avalanche Photodiodes (APD) are ideal for laser-based distance measurement, laser scanning and mapping, shape recognition and remote sensing, as well as LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging). APDs also excel in applications with very low optical signal strength or with high modulation frequencies.
