ams showcases how sensor solutions enable “Intelligent Connectivity” at MWC 2019

Premstaetten, Austria (11 February, 2019) -- ams (SIX: AMS), a leading worldwide supplier of high performance sensor solutions, will showcase several industry-first technologies for mobile devices at MWC 2019 in Barcelona later this month. 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.

ams customers will experience ground-breaking sensor solutions for mobile, computing and consumers. This includes: 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. Show visitors can see how ams advances in industry-leading 3D technology 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.

“We invest to remain at the forefront of technology to create new market trends, and what we are showing at MWC is the result: ground-breaking sensor solutions touch every aspect of people’s lives to make things simpler, more autonomous, and fun,” says Alexander Everke, CEO at ams. “Our solutions help our customers differentiate their brands, while providing real ‘fun-factor’ ingredients that excite users of new technology.”
