The CMOS sensor market has been expanding since the first half of the year 2000. During that time, CMOS sensors have been developed for the purpose of pursuing image quality, such as the clarity of flat images in cell phones, digital cameras, and single-lens reflex cameras.

On the other hand, in the new and rapidly expanding image sensor market, the importance of three-dimensional shape recognition images for robots, drones, shape measurement devices, face recognition, etc., is rapidly being demanded as an application different from image quality.

For an independent and venture company like Rosnes, entering such a growing new market is a great opportunity, and we have decided to start our own brand of CMOS sensors for three-dimensional (3D) distance measurement.

In particular, we will promote the development of CMOS sensors with a new structure and small pixel size that are superior to those of competitors.
