Silicon Impulse

The one-stop-shop for ultra-low power design!

Unique design flow and IP expertise to leverage the advantages of FD-SOI know-how from IC design through embedded software to deliver a complete system solution.

The Silicon Impulse program was set up as a one-stop shop for developing advanced technologies, demonstrators and products. Manufacturers and other industrial companies can access the program to reduce the cost of integrating advanced FDSOI technologies into their products.

Unique in Europe, CEA Tech institutes Leti and List, operating in cooperation with their partners, provide businesses with consultancy services, easy access to ultra-low-power FDSOI advanced technology nodes, architecture emulation, design know-how in mixed digital-analog and RF ICs as well as broad selection of generic, commercial, and proprietary IPs, industrial testing and validation of small production runs, and technology and process transfer to user production facilities.

Hyper Vision

Intelligent Camera System for Hyper-spectral Imaging.

WHAT IS THE HYPER VISION SYSTEM?

CSEM offers a hyperspectral imaging system based on a new idea of light-field imaging. With low cost, the hypercube resolution of the camera is offering best-in-class performance. Also, the camera has a modular structure which enables us to easily customize it for different applications and environments. It offers flexibility in spatial resolution and in spectral channels.

HYPER VISION SYSTEM:

Characteristics
Number of Spectral Channels 54 (customizable)
Wavelength Range (nm) 450 – 880 (customizable)
Spectral Resolution (nm) 12
Cube Resolution (pixel) 280 × 280 × 54 (customizable)
Detector Type Si CMOS
Shutter Type Global Shutter
Camera Interface USB 3.0

APPLICATIONS

  • Process control
  • Medical diagnostics
  • Precision agriculture
  • Food quality

What’s new?

  • Modular system
  • Customizable spatial resolution
  • Customizable number of channels
  • Customizable wavelength range
  • Adaptive: ability to trade spatial and spectral resolution
  • Machine learning for information extraction and classification

WHAT’s NEXT

  • Tailoring the camera for specific applications by using only the spectral channels that are relevant for each application. This is possible due to modularity and high customizability of the design.
  • Miniaturizing the camera to be portable on the drones
  • Embedding the machine learning unit for binocular-type applications.

INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION:

  • 2 patent applications
