Program Sponsor

Phantom Intelligence reduces collisions by making reliable obstacle detection systems affordable to all vehicles. Phantom Intelligence’ collision warning sensor technology can be trusted where other sensors fail. Compact, low-cost and without moving parts, LIDAR sensors powered by Phantom Intelligence meet stringent environmental and security requirements to provide 360-degree awareness. Phantom Intelligence provides crucial signal processing algorithms that enhance the range and reliability of LIDAR (laser-based) obstacle detection devices. We currently showcase this technology within solid-state, low to medium resolution "flash" LIDAR sensors, used for collision warning applications. Our sensors provide accurate detection of vehicles, pedestrians and other targets under conditions where camera-based systems would fail (low-light, camera saturation, low-contrast, obscurants such as rain or snow etc.) and where radar systems would be less efficient (cluttered environments, "soft" obstacles).


Reception Sponsor

Infineon designs, develops, manufactures, and markets a broad range of semiconductors and system solutions. The focus of its activities is on automotive electronics, industrial electronics, communication and information technologies, and hardware-based security. Combining entrepreneurial success with responsible action, at Infineon we make the world easier, safer and greener.

Furthermore, they safeguard data communication, improve safety on roads and reduce automotive emissions. Infineon organizes its operations in four segments: automotive, industrial power control, power management and multimarket, and chip card and security. The automotive product range includes: 32-bit automotive microcontrollers for powertrain, safety and driver assistance systems, discrete power semiconductors, IGBT modules, industrial microcontrollers, magnetic and pressure sensors, power ICs, radar sensor ICs (77 GHz), transceivers (CAN, LIN, ethernet, FlexRay), voltage regulators, etc.


Lunch Sponsor

GDSI is the first true, bona fide service company in the USA to offer non-contact dicing using the Stealth Laser approach. Dicing represents one of numerous physical challenges with producing MEMS and sensor devices on a commercial scale. Stealth creates an internal scribe or modification layer in the material, eliminating the need to protect your device layer. Same day service is possible. 25+ years of experience supporting both NPI and production programs in the Silicon Valley. Special emphasis on custom thinning, dicing, automated pick and inspection of fragile parts with protection of the device in mind. ISO 9001:2015 registered with a robust quality management system. Offering consultation on mask layout so your MEMS wafer can accommodate Stealth Laser dicing. GDSI collaborates with several large IC foundries and MEMS manufacturing groups, focusing on yield improvement and design for manufacturability for your device.


Internet Sponsor

Hamamatsu Corporation is the North American subsidiary of Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. (Japan), a leading manufacturer of devices for the measurement of infrared, visible, and ultraviolet light. In the automotive area, we offer highly reliable optoelectronic components for safety systems, automatic climate control systems, data communications, and other advanced car features.


Media Sponsor
