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’s Paul Sharman took time out of a busy day one of the exhibition to catch us up on some recent product releases.
Paul Sharman, First Sensor vice president of sales and marketing, walked us through the booth to point out some of the more notable displays, and gave us an examples of a real world application in which his company’s products are being used.
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.
First Sensor presents the new X7 PIN photodiodes for the detection of ionizing radiation in container and baggage scanner OEM applications.
First Sensor specializes in the development and manufacture of custom sensors, electronics, modules and complex systems. As a solution provider the company offers complete development services from a first draft and proof of concept up to the development of prototypes and finally serial production.
First Sensor presents the new digital Blue Eagle camera line with a very light sensitive HDR-CMOS image sensor and excellent thermal and mechanical stability for use in automotive and mobile OEM applications. With its high dynamic range >100 dB the megapixel cameras are ideal for high brightness differences and low light conditions.
First Sensor develops and manufactures Hybrids as high speed optical data receivers for a long time and has gained many years of experience and know-how.
First Sensor presents the further development of its APD module, at the heart of which a low-noise Si Avalanche photodiode with a pre-amplifier and integrated voltage supply is to be found.
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.

To meet the growing need for very compact and highly integrated detector systems First Sensor Inc. International, a leading manufacturer of silicon based detectors, announces a new chip technology. By First Sensor Inc. International
This application note provides background information on what position sensitive detectors are, how they’re used, their design, common concerns with their spatial resolution, how they compare to CMOS or CCD image sensors, and how they compare to quadrant photodiodes. The integration of three DL400 Position Sensor Detectors (Or PSDs) into the NuStar X-Ray Satellite is also discussed. For that particular project, the PSDs were used for continuous alignment of the telescope’s optics with respect to the sensor unit.
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.
