TowerJazz, leading producer of semiconductor devices, declared that e2v, a global designer of imaging systems technology, has considerably enhanced the manufacturing rate of e2v’s dental x-ray sensing devices by integrating Tower Jazz’s cutting-edge 0.18-micron CMOS Image Sensor (CIS) methodology.
According to the prediction by market sources, this business will add several million dollars income to TowerJazz annually, with its initial sale in this year.
London Stock market-transacted e2v has experienced high production rates throughout the past year, employing the Fab2 facility of Tower Jazz’s for satisfying the requirements of these innovative sensing systems. E2v Company remarked that the progressive dental X-ray sensing business, starting from film to digital and from CCD to CMOS technology, valued $30 million in 2009 is likely to grow exponentially by 10% to 15%, annually.
These dental intra-oral X-ray sensing units will substitute the X-ray film technology previously used by dentists, displaying an instantaneous digital image on the screen instead of on the film that requires developing.
