e2v appoints FRAMOS to distribute high performance CMOS image sensors in EMEA

e2v has today announced that it has appointed FRAMOS, the German based provider of imaging solutions, as a distributor for its high performance Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

e2v has over 40 years of experience in designing, manufacturing and delivering high quality, high performance imaging solutions for cutting edge industrial, medical and science applications. e2v’s entire CMOS image sensor portfolio, which includes the Jade, Sapphire, Ruby and Onyx sensor families, will now be available through FRAMOS. These e2v sensors operate from the near infrared to near ultra-violet empowering optimum imaging results. Exceptional image quality can be achieved in extreme low light imaging conditions (such as fog and smoke) or in applications requiring performance and durability over extended temperature ranges, such as security/surveillance cameras.

Jean-Philippe Lamarcq, Vice President of Professional Imaging Sales & Business Development at e2v, said, “FRAMOS are well known for their customer dedication, technical expertise and high quality of service in imaging technology. They bring over 30 years of experience in image sensor sales in the European market, allowing e2v to extend its reach and broaden its customer base. I look forward to a long and fruitful relationship.”

Axel Krepil, Head of FRAMOS’ Image Sensor Division, said, “The FRAMOS Group is in a period of global expansion and tremendous growth. Establishing this agreement with e2v strengthens our portfolio for customers and will enable us to solidify our leadership in the global Machine Vision and special applications market, while offering local and timely support at all levels.”
