Mobile & Wearables Overview

Mobile & Wearables

The development of ultra-low power and low-noise silicon devices for imaging and for environmental, optical and audio sensing is giving manufacturers new opportunities to extend the range of functions and applications that mobile products address.


Smartphones, smart watches, smart wristbands and other personal products are becoming the connected hubs for functions such as health and fitness tracking and air quality monitoring. These same products’ performance and security are enhanced by features such as ambient light sensing and user face recognition.


These and many other applications are enabled by the latest mobile sensor technologies from ams.

Computing Overview


With the availability of full-HD resolution displays now shipping in laptop mobile computing platforms, the need for adjusting not only the screen brightness level has been surpassed to adjust the white-point of the display as well. High-accuracy XYZ color sensors enable these high resolution emissive displays to shift their white point to match the color temperature of the ambient light – allowing the display text to be readable similar to that of printed paper and thus improving a user’s experience.
