Towerjazz steps up production of e2v’s dental x-ray sensors

Imaging technology provider e2v has increased the rate of production of its dental x-ray sensors incorporating Towerjazz’s advanced 0.18-micron CMOS Image Sensor (CIS) technology.

Dental intra-oral x-ray sensors replace the x-ray film that dentists use, providing an instant digital image on a screen rather than on film that needs developing.

The design knowledge of e2v, combined with the manufacturing capabilities of speciality foundry Towerjazz, has resulted in a new generation of System-on-Chip (SoC) dental sensors benefiting from high image quality and advanced levels of integration and embedded capabilities.
