a leading provider of intelligent micro imaging, sensing and light
systems for smart devices, today announced it has shipped more than one
billion units to OEM customers. The company, which is headquartered in
Singapore, includes among its customers some of the largest makers of
smart phones and tablets in the world.
"Our rapid growth results from a powerful combination of innovation and
execution," said Christian Tang-Jespersen, Heptagon’s chief executive
officer president. "World-class R D, along with a relentless focus on
quality and a proven agility to move rapidly from white board to mass
production have driven rapid market acceptance of our products. We’re
even more excited about our future and shipping the next billion units."
Heptagon’s products are used in a wide variety of imaging, sensing and
light applications that require miniaturization, precision and high
performance. The company’s computational imaging cameras and sensing
modules are used in smart phones, notebooks and tablets, as well as a
broad range of other applications. Its light modules are used for LED
flash in smart phones and smart devices, and as miniaturized solutions
for infrared beam shaping and supporting gesture control in natural user
interfaces, including time of flight systems and other motion sensing
Continuous innovation is part of the company’s DNA. In the next twelve
months, it will introduce many new products including: dual LED flash
systems to enhance image quality; new forms of sensing for industrial
imaging; high field of view camera modules; and computational imaging
arrays that enable both HD video and megapixel still images. Heptagon’s
new products will help to radically reduce the height and total
footprint of smart devices, enhance image quality by incorporating
greater depth sensing with video-stream information, and enable entirely
new use cases for smart phones, tablets and other consumer electronics.
Heptagon has unique competencies in wafer-level integration to produce
high-performing micro optics, micro modules and micro imaging systems.
Over 20 years of innovations in technology, manufacturing and
operations, as well as rigorous supply chain management, form the
foundation for Heptagon’s differentiation.
