SAN JOSE, Calif., March 25, 2010 – Tessera Technologies Inc. announced it has licensed its OptiML Focus image enhancement solution to AzureWave Technologies Inc. of Taiwan.
The solution, which provides automatic focus capabilities in camera-enabled devices to deliver high-quality images with no moving parts, will be integrated into the latter company’s next-generation camera modules for laptop computers, webcams, cell phones and other camera-enabled devices.
