ams AG to Showcase “Intelligent Connectivity” Sensor Solutions at MWC 2019

Posted Feb 12, 2019 by ams AG

High performance sensor solutions expert, ams AG, will be showcasing several industry-first technologies for mobile devices at the MWC 2019 event in Barcelona from 25-28 February.

Digital transformation influences every existing business model and the emerging use case scenarios of tomorrow depend on the combination of sensor technology and the promise of 5G, so ams is investing to drive innovation in sensor solutions on behalf of its many customers in the mobile industry.

At the event, ams customers will experience ground-breaking sensor solutions for mobile, computing and consumers. This will include: highly advanced 3D technology for smart phones, computing, automotive and robotics; behind OLED solutions for bezel-less phones; color sensors that enhance pictures to professional levels; the tiny, yet powerful earbud technology for a relaxing ANC experience (digital and analog) and medical-grade wearable devices that monitor blood pressure.

The company will also showcase how this technology can be used in white goods, industrial and automotive areas. Visitors can see how ams advances in industry-leading 3D technology that will be used in the specialized applications of tomorrow: from solid-state LiDAR to 3D car access and commands, to 3D solutions and advanced hearing for Robotics and AI.
