Himax to Debut Next Generation AI and Optics Technology Suites

Exhibition to Showcase Himax Leading-Edge WiseEye Smart Image Sensing, 3D Sensing and WLO Technologies

Himax Technologies, a leading supplier and fabless manufacturer of display drivers and other semiconductor products, announced the Company will exhibit at CES 2023, the largest consumer electronics show in the US, from January 5 – 8, 2023 in Las Vegas. Himax will showcase its proprietary AI and Optics product lines, including WiseEye™ smart image sensing (“WiseEye”), 3D sensing and Wafer Level Optics (“WLO”) technologies, in a range of applications.

The WiseEye showcase will feature a live demonstration with industry-leading ecosystem partners and customers, including Novatek Microelectronics Corp., Useful Sensors Inc., Seeed Studio and Wentai Technology Corp., to jointly introduce the neomodern ultralow power tinyML solutions in smart home, smart agriculture, smart office and surveillance applications. WiseEye adoption is quickly expanding across a diverse array of applications featuring new AI use cases in areas such as human presence, motion sensing, people counting, face detection, and speech recognition, with excellent power efficiency and inference performance. Currently WiseEye is already in mass production with Dell in a series of premium laptops and many other AI applications, including automatic meter reading (AMR), shared bike parking, and smart office/home.

Building on the success of its industry leading WE1 AI processor, Himax will debut its next generation WE2 AI processor at CES 2023. The WE2 features Arm based Cortex CPU and Ethos NPU, rich sets of sensor control interfaces, industrial grade security and cryptography engines, and multi-layer power management architecture, which reaches a 40% peak power saving and 30-fold inference speed, implying over 50 times power efficiency on a per inference basis compared to WE1, which is already the industry’s leading solution in terms of power consumption and inference speed in the ultralow power AI processor category.

“We are extremely excited about the prospects for WE2 which further demonstrates our commitment to strengthening our WiseEye product roadmap,” said Jordan Wu, Chief Executive Officer at Himax. “Our expertise in developing ultralow power AI innovative technologies has enabled us to partner with innovative AI companies such as Useful Sensors, led by Pete Warden, as well as other leading tech experts in the AIoT industry to accelerate adoption of our industry-leading solutions.”

Himax will also introduce a series of next generation 3D vision processors at the event. The Company’s next-gen 3D vision processor offers 3D Time of Flight (”ToF”) depth ISP decoding capability, outputting 60Hz VGA and low latency motion depth map, which are crucial for next generation AR/VR applications. Additionally, the Company will showcase structured light vision AI processors which can enable 3D eye tracking at a 210FPS output as well as 3D hand tracking, providing a low-friction, immersive and advanced user experience for naked-eye 3D display applications.

For WLO, Himax is a pioneer in high-precision diffraction optics technology with more than 15 years of experience. At CES the Company will demonstrate its exceptional WLO optics components, including 2/3P reflowable WLO lens, Diffractive Optical Element (”DOE”), Micro Lens Array (”MLA”), and Waveguide. While some of these optical components have already commenced production by the world’s largest tech names in areas such as 3D sensing, AR/VR, holographic displays and biomedical inspection devices, additional new design engagements and collaborations in metaverse-centric applications are under development and set to go to market starting late 2023. Moreover, Himax will exhibit a series of state-of-the-art dot projector modules and EVK (Evaluation Kit), which are designed to drastically lower design entry barriers for optics developers.
