    Xiaomi is the first smartphone OEM to implement an ultrasonic proximity sensing solution. This is not a coincidence as the Mi Mix has the highest screen to body ratio (edging out some devices from Sharp). This leaves Xiaomi with nowhere to place a proximity sensor, a key sensor for touchscreen smartphone usability. Please log in for more.

    In a previous analyst insight on the ams acquisition of Heptagon, it was noted that the acquisition could be linked (among other reasons) to Heptagon having a major customer commitment (assumed to be Apple) for a product ramp in H2 2017. IHS Markit has assumed that this must be for Heptagon’s time of flight packaging work (to be combined with ams’ IC design and sensors). As mentioned by ams in a recent call, it would have the scale to ramp up production of this part to meet high volume demands in a way that Heptagon could not. Press on title to read the rest...

    The light sensors market is one where new (time of flight) sensors, increasingly popular (heart rate) sensors add healthy revenue to the standard light sensor market. Like the MEMS microphone market, the light sensor market is also one where sensor ASP can vary dramatically by performance and packaging and this fact is integrated into the discussion in the report.
