A top semiconductor company will integrate and license ActLights’s Dynamic PhotoDiodes. They will be used in wearable devices for vital signs monitoring. 

ActLight SA, the start-up company founded in 2011 and based in Lausanne - Switzerland, focuses on the field of CMOS photonics by developing a new type of photodetector, the Dynamic PhotoDiode (DPD). Being a fabless company, ActLight specializes in the Intellectual Property (IP) of this area and operates primarily in the IP licensing business model.

The patented CMOS-based photonics technology allows the substantial improvement of the efficiency and accuracy of various light sensing applications, such as Time-Of-Flight (TOF) based range meters, vital signs monitoring, 3D/2D cameras and much more. ActLight operates in the Internet of Things (IoT) market, with a focus on mobile and wearable devices, healthcare/medtech, autonomous driving, drones and robotics.

ActLight has announced recently that it has signed an agreement with a top semiconductor company for the integration and licensing of the DPD into their Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) for vital signs monitoring, to be used in the next generation of wearable devices.

"The demand for vital signs monitoring sensors is growing at an accelerated pace with a need for innovative sensor technologies," said Serguei Okhonin, ActLight Co-Founder and CEO. "The collaboration with this prestigious semiconductor company is expected to deliver to the market the new, world-class sensing solution that will enhance the vital signs monitoring experience of the wearable device's users".
