Tower Semiconductor Ltd. has begun volume production of CMOS image sensor (CIS) products for Vision Integration Technology Inc. (ViTi) in its Fab1 manufacturing facility.

Taiwan-based ViTi specializes in products for security and surveillance systems, primarily in the Chinese and European markets. The growth in video surveillance is expected to open a vast array of opportunities for associated semiconductors.

ViTi began volume production of its home security and CCTV sensors in Tower's Fab1 using a 0.35? CIS process. The products employ pixel IP that was designed and optimized by Tower specifically for demanding applications.

"With Tower's 0.35? process and pixel IP, our sensor's low-light sensitivity to both visible and infrared light is superior to competitors' similar products, achieving enhanced performanceeven in night conditions, which are prevalent in security and surveillance applications," said Ching Lin Hsieh, president for ViTi."

"ViTi contributed their experience and knowledge in the security applications while Tower delivered the technology for low noise and light sensitivity in dark environment," said Jonathan Gendler, director of CIS & NVM customer management at Tower. "We trust that Tower's technology advantage and our engineering capabilities will serve ViTi well in its efforts to dominate this emerging market in China."
