Advanced CMOS Image Sensors

Specialised Imaging Ltd, the market leader in ultra-high speed imaging technology reports as of 1st October 2016 the formation of a new division - Wegapixel focusing on the design and development of advanced CMOS imaging sensors.

Wegapixel has been set-up as a turn-key solutions provider for custom CMOS image sensors. In addition to conventional imager design, the company brings together unique expertise in many application areas including high speed imaging, electron microscopy, X-ray digital imaging as well as UV and IR imaging.

We have the expertise, experience and capabilities to support companies on projects or product developments requiring high performance image sensors. Wegapixel is able to offer customers a range of services from CMOS sensor specification, definition and design right through to full management of production and interacting with manufacturing facilities.

Being part of Specialised Imaging provides us with the financial support and global reach to enable expansion of our advanced CMOS imaging sensor business.  Importantly however, Wegapixel will be maintained as a stand-alone business, setting up its own relationship with its distinct customer base.

Dr Renato Turchetta, the CEO of Wegapixel

It was the development of high performance CMOS imaging sensors for our Queens Award winning Kirana ultra-high speed video camera that led us to see the strategic importance of bringing this technical resource in-house.

In Wegapixel we have acquired unique knowledge of scientific and advanced CMOS imaging sensors as well as a world-class CAD design and support team.

Wai Chan, Managing Director of Specialised Imaging
