Sep 2016
PREMSTAETTEN, Austria — Semiconductor manufacturer AMS AG has acquired Cambridge CMOS Sensors Ltd. (CCMOSS) in an all-cash agreement, of which the terms were not disclosed.

CCMOSS’ micro hotplates are MEMS structures used in gas sensors for volume applications in the automotive, industrial, medical and consumer markets, complementary to AMS’ metal oxide gas sensing materials to detect gases like carbon monoxide, nitric oxide and volatile organic compounds. CCMOSS also holds a portfolio of IR technology comprising high-performance IR radiation sources and detectors for sensor applications.

AMS plans to fully integrate CCMOSS’ activities into its existing environmental sensor business, which has development locations in Eindhoven, Netherlands, and Reutlingen, Germany.
