Display Management

Display Management

Paper-like displays An ams high-accuracy XYZ color sensor enables an emissive display to shift its white point to match the color temperature of the ambient light. The effect is to make displayed text as readable as printed paper, improving the user experience in devices such as tablets and smartphones.

Small aperture Through innovative packaging and silicon design, ams ambient light sensing (ALS) and RGB sensors support operation via the smallest aperture behind inked glass in the industry. These sensors meet the most challenging industrial design requirements while providing superior proximity detection performance with minimal optical cross-talk.

Behind OLED displays The mobile handset market will continue to follow the trend to ever higher screen-to-body ratios and ultimately to all-screen, bezel-less smartphones. Technology developed by ams will enable accurate ambient light, color and proximity sensing solutions to operate behind OLED displays used in these next generation mobile handsets.

Mobile Application - Image Enhancement

Image Enhancement

Auto white-balancing (AWB) RGB and XYZ color sensors from ams can be used to improve a camera’s image processing and AWB algorithm to produce a picture with excellent white balance – a result which today’s camera functions often fail to achieve. These sensors support the camera image sensor algorithm by providing critical information to the AWB algorithm about the color of the ambient light sources, enabling it to dramatically improve the white balance of the image.

Light-source detection ams RGB and high-accuracy XYZ color sensors offer dedicated infrared photodiode detection channels which enable display management and automatic white-balancing (AWB) applications to optimize their performance. They do so by detecting the sources of light in the immediate environment.

Auto-focus and background blur assist single and multi-zone direct time-of-flight (dToF) sensors enable accurate and fast measurement of the distance to an object, which means that a camera can take in-focus pictures even of moving objects.

Spectral ALS Sensors from ams enable unprecedented light-source detection and AWB improvement, by utilizing spectrometer-like light source detection capabilities and included flicker detection. Even in situations with extreme color contrast or under non-ideal/mixed light source conditions.

Mobile Application - Color Matching

Color Matching

ams brings accurate color matching directly to the smartphone. Based on ams multi-channel spectral sensors, color matching applications improve the consumer’s experience of retail and e-commerce operations, and enable artificial intelligence and other smart tools to help them find the products that they are looking for.

Vital Signs Monitoring

Vital signs are measurements of the body's basic functions, and may be used to assess the general physical health of a person. These signals, which vary with age, weight, gender, and physical condition, are useful in detecting or monitoring medical problems. Vital signs can be measured in a medical setting, at home, at the site of a medical emergency, or elsewhere.
The next generation of vital sign sensor solutions will be smaller and more integrated, will provide more connectivity, will cost less, will sense multiple parameters and will provide more accurate measurements. ams OSRAM has a wide range of technologies that support the development of these new sensor products. In addition, its optical modules can easily be integrated into systems intended for use in either consumer or medical devices

ams OSRAM enables:

  • Non-invasive measurements of medical parameters: pulse rate, electrocardiogram (ECG), blood oxygen
  • Additional vital sign parameters derived from ECG and pulse rate: blood pressure, arterial elasticity and vagal tone
  • Continuous monitoring of  health status as part of a preventive medicine program
  • The development of small, highly integrated, cost effective, medical-grade solutions based on optical modules and supporting algorithms
