Manufacturing technologies have begun a period of revolutionary development. With the advent of the IoT society in which many types of devices connect to the Internet, product quality the states and even the condition of manufacturing equipment at factories can be digitized to create real-time visualization of data. This enables better coordination between machines and as well as between man and machine to improve productivity. With this focus on manufacturing technologies, the importance and demands of imaging and sensing technologies that can obtain various information at high-speed and high-accuracy have never been greater. Image sensors are the key devices necessary to meet these demands.
The core CMOS image sensor product provided by Sony include the innovative Pregius and Pregius S global shutter technologies that were developed to improve productivity in various industries through various applications.
