Brainvision Inc. (Tokyo, Japan) and Caeleste (Antwerp, Belgium)  have materialized their licence agreement on the design of “TOF” (time of flight) image sensors based on Caeleste’s patent US7564022. The design collaboration started in December 2010. A first VGA resolution sensor now succesfully demonstrated.

The key advantage of Caeleste patented technology resides in the strict usage of standard, mainstream CMOS technology, leading to lowest possible manufacturing cost. Brainvision Inc. and Stanley Electric Co. Ltd (Tokyo, Japan) aim to serve the high volume applications such as automotive market and machine vision with Caeleste technology.
