Stacked Image Sensor Enables ‘Internet of Things’ Fire Sensing

January 6, 2015 – As the number of devices connected to the Internet is expected to grow to more than 50 billion devices by 2020, this interconnected network of sensors—described as the Internet of Things (IoT)—has become the focus of a number of leading technology companies. Recognizing the growing demand for image capture and video streaming capability for these devices within a number of market applications (industrial, medical, automotive, and consumer), Forza Silicon (Pasadena, CA) has developed a reconfigurable image sensor technology platform to enable and accelerate new-product development within these markets; specifically, an initial application is for in-home fire detection..
