Ayala tech firm ships 100K automotive cameras to Bosch

Integrated Micro-Electronics Inc. (IMI), an Ayala-owned provider of electronics manufacturing services (EMS) and power semiconductor assembly and test services, recently marked the production and shipment of 100,000 multi-purpose automotive cameras for German tech giant Bosch.

Bosch is a global supplier of technology and devices in the areas of automotive, industrial, and consumer electronics. IMI is a supplier to Bosch in the EMS category.

The Multi Purpose Camera (MPC) produced by IMI for Bosch is a scalable platform for video-based driver assistance functions and can be optimized for a variety of applications. Its modern optical system focuses images onto a high dynamic range CMOS sensor (imager).

An analog to digital converter transforms the intensity and the color of the light into an electrical image signal. This signal is further processed by a high performance microprocessor integrated into the camera housing. This integrative approach does not require a separate control unit.

The MPC has been developed for comfort and safety applications such as lane departure warning and lane keeping support, intelligent headlight control, road sign recognition, object detection and verification to support and improve radar-based functions like Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and the Predictive Emergency Braking System, Forward Collision Warning as well as Driver Drowsiness Detection.

Arthur R. Tan, IMI president and chief executive officer, said, ?In January of this year we renewed our preferred supplier status for Bosch. In October we achieved the milestone of 100,000 multi-purpose automotive cameras produced for them.?

Andreas Reppich, engineering director in Bosch Chassis Systems and Control, said, ?I am extremely pleased that IMI was able to reach this milestone within only one year given the complexity of the product and its manufacturing process. The strong partnership between Bosch and IMI continues to yield quality products.?

IMI has been a supplier to Bosch for more than a decade in diversified markets, which include automotive, industrial, and consumer electronic products.
