ON Semiconductor bolsters Truesense Imaging portfolio

Rochester Business Journal
July 15, 2014

Phoenix-based ON Semiconductor Corp. is expanding the image sensor portfolio acquired from Truesense Imaging Inc., its recent Lake Avenue acquisition.

The new charge-coupled device sensor, the KAI-08051 Image Sensor, enables reduced read noise, improved light sensitivity and a better accuracy in color, which expands the eight megapixel image capture. The sensor will be used for intelligent traffic, medical imaging, industrial inspection and surveillance applications.

“CCD image sensors continue to provide the critical image quality required in many key applications,” said Christopher McNiffe, vice president of the Image Sensor Business unit at ON Semiconductor, in a statement.

McNiffe previously was CEO of Truesense Imaging. ON Semiconductor purchased the local firm for $95 million in April. The former Truesense Imaging, a developer and manufacturer of CCD device and complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor image sensors, employs roughly 225 people in Rochester.
