Heptagon is a global leader in micro-optics and optical sensing solutions with particular expertise in high performance optical packaging where the company is positioned as innovation leader.
Through the addition of Heptagon ams expects to increase and accelerate its mid-term growth opportunities, particularly in consumer optical sensing.
Alexander Everke, CEO of ams, commented on the transaction, Combining ams and Heptagon creates the clear #1 in optical sensing technologies and fast-tracks our innovation capabilities.
Heptagon has effectively leveraged its patented wafer-level miniaturization technology to reduce the form factor, lower the total system cost, and improve the aesthetics of mobile and wearable devices, while conforming to stringent quality standards, said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Dr Rajender Thusu.
Heptagon has distinctly applied its cutting-edge system-in-a-package technology in its entire class of optical sensors including single and multipoint 3-D range sensors, camera modules, proximity sensors, and illuminators.
Furthermore, Heptagon closely collaborates with customers to rightly define target specifications for light, sensing, and imaging solutions.
