Providing Full Custom ASIC/ROIC Designs & Services
BFE is a leading innovator of pixel-based sensor readouts and displays with extensive expertise in ROICs for IR, visible, and X-Ray detectors, and camera integration (including micro and nano sized IR camera design). BFE designs, tests, and provides consulting services for nonstandard ICs that are essential for systems to meet their requirements. Our broad and extensive experience make us a good fit for a multitude of applications, and above all we enjoy providing successful solutions to the most difficult problems. Often forging into the bleeding edge of innovation where few dare tread.
The accuracy and controlled field of view provided by LIDAR for ranging has made it a useful tool for military for many years but as our designs improve and processes become faster, LIDAR’s ability to provide ranging information for closer objects is becoming more popular for commercial applications and nothing speaks to our commitment to LIDAR’s future more than our association with Luminar.
IR has long been a staple of military capabilities but as uncooled detectors become more prominent, commercial applications expand, and over the years BFE’s experience has allowed them to make some of the most capable Readout Integrated Circuits (ROICs) available. We have also designed micro and nano sized IR camera modules. View details about our Blackfire camera system here.
We designed CMOS imagers long before they were a ubiquitous part of our everyday lives and we continue to innovate.
LCD & MEMS
IC control of LCD and Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) provide fascinating possibilities for countless applications including micro-fluidics and light modulation (displays).
