Since its founding in 1996, acam messelectronic gmbh has been developing and producing solutions and concepts for measuring based on time interval measurement in the picosecond range. The expert knowledge in developing integrated circuits for high precision time measurement is used to customize the universal nature of time measurement to common measurement categories, such as resistance or capacity. Our pure digital converters based on CMOS technology not only achieve best performance characteristics but also open completely new possibilities for customer applications.
Based on acam's TDC (Time-to-Digital Converter) technology new product families arose named as , and , which demonstrate the manifoldness and power of this measuring principle. The KARDUX cup award of the PS02, a member of our PICOSTRAIN product family, emphasizes the innovation of our products. Their outstanding features are low power consumption, high accuracy and high measuring rates associated with competitive pricing.
The aim of the company is to establish our digital measuring technology and its advantages as alternative to common analog measuring principles to enter the large application potential in sensor technology and automotive environment as well as for consumer applications. The use of standardized digital CMOS technologies has been proved as a big advantage even for the use in mass applications. This simplifies the implementation of customer requirements in application specific IC's up to System-on-Chip (SoC) solutions associated with are simplified and with marginal risk. The cooperation with established ASIC-vendors and silicon foundries guarantees highest quality and reliability for our customers.
Acam is dedicated not only to continuous enhancement of the existing product range, but also to responding to customer demands and suggestions with a high degree of flexibility and openness. This ensures that all solutions are custom tailored and represent the state-of-the-art in ultra-precise measurement technology.
Unterpremstaetten, Austria (4 December 2014) - ams (SIX: AMS), a leading worldwide manufacturer of high performance sensor and analog solutions, has entered into an agreement to acquire 100% of the shares in acam-messelectronic, a leader in highly accurate time-based measurement and related sensor solutions.
