Korean foundry Dongbu HiTek Co. Ltd has announced that it has begun producing BYD Microelectronics' high dynamic range (HDR) CMOS image sensor (CIS) chips. BYD is a subsidiary of BYD Co. Ltd and manufactures a range of products, from batteries to electric vehicles.

Initially BYD's move into CMOS image sensors will be based on processing at the 130nm node and target security surveillance applications, including door monitor systems, Dongbu said.

The high dynamic range specification that BYD has designed into its image sensors will mean that they can image successfully across conditions ranging from direct sunlight to dim moonlight, Dongbu added.
