Nemotek Technologie Introduces Two-Element, Wafer-Level Camera Lens for Ultra-Slim Mobile Phones and Notebooks

Designed for portable applications, alternative glass lenses offer higher resolution at lower costs

Mobile World Congress 2010

SALA AL JADIDA, Morocco--()--Nemotek Technologie, a manufacturer of customized Wafer-Level Cameras for portable applications, today launches its first two-element VGA wafer-level lens. Providing an advanced camera lens design with lower distortion, better resolution and higher image quality, the two-element lens utilizes glass wafers instead of traditional plastic. Marking the first steps in the next-generation of wafer-level lenses, Nemotek brings to market a compact, reflowable lens that provides high-end features at lower costs.

As an alternative to the multi-element plastic lens, Nemotek utilizes replicated lenses on glass to deliver a reliable solution that can withstand the most intense, environmental conditions. An infrared filter and apertures are also incorporated into the lens structure to reduce the number of components within a camera module and assist in the development of ultra-slim handsets. Ideal for mobile phone and portable laptop applications, this lens leads the industry into the future of higher resolutions, such as two megapixels and three megapixels.

“With the two-element lens we are providing a smaller and compact form factor that utilizes the advantages of wafer-level technology and improves the overall image quality for cameras,” said Jacky Perdrigeat, CEO of Nemotek Technologie. “Utilizing cutting-edge wafer-level technology, our lenses benefit from high reliability, miniaturization as well as cost reduction. With this new offering, we are reinforcing Nemotek’s capabilities in the field of wafer-level optics and also marking the next stages for this technology, resulting in higher resolution.”

Nemotek’s two-element lens is comprised of two optical wafers that are processed separately and then bonded together before being diced. By producing a pair of lenses, Nemotek overcomes the technical challenges of aligning, bonding and dicing two glass wafers together. This new lens is added to the Nemotek family of optical solutions, tailored for customers in the form of lenses or directly mounted on an image sensor.

Nemotek Technologie will be demonstrating this new two-element VGA wafer-level lens (NEMO-02VG) at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
