Who we are
ISDC (Image Sensors Design Center) Ltd. is a Sony innovation and development center, focusing on developing next generation image sensors and other sensors, including depth sensors. We are part of Sony Semiconductor Solutions (SSS) - a global leader in the market of image sensors for mobile phones, and a key player in the image sensor market for industrial, medical, automotive, security and many other applications.
Our world leading team comprises of a small and selected group of engineers whose passion is to develop state-of-the-art CMOS Image Sensor chips using advanced IC processing and design technologies.
We work closely with Sony Semiconductor Solutions in Japan and collaborate with our sister companies in Europe, US and Israel.
Our cutting-edge technology is embedded in a variety of applications including mobile phones, professional photography & cinema, automotive, and factory automation.
As a sensor design team with highly experienced and skilled engineers, ISDC Ltd specializes in:
- Pixel readout & digitization circuits, with best-in-class performance parameters: low power, low noise, low area, high uniformity and image quality.
- Pixel drive circuits, including special circuits for Time-of-Flight depth sensor pixels.
- Image sensor control, communication, video output and pixel processing on-chip.
The above is achieved with thorough verification & characterization to guarantee performance in silicon, high reliability, and high yield.
Sigma Delta readout for full frame DSLR sensor used in Alpha1 Camera.
ƩΔ column ADC technology, developed by ISDC in Israel, enables super-fast rolling shutter imaging at high ADC bit depth (14 bit).
The technology was embedded in an advanced image sensor device integrated into the heart of Sony's professional flagship Alpha 1 Camera.
The project received distinguished awards for innovation in Sony.
