ON Semiconductor Acquires SensL

Photonics Spectra
Aug 2018
PHOENIX, — Semiconductor solution developer ON Semiconductor Corp. has acquired sensing technology developer SensL Technologies Ltd., based in Ireland.

SensL specializes in silicon photomultipliers and single-photon avalanche diode and lidar sensing products for automotive, medical, industrial, and consumer markets. This acquisition aims to strengthen ON Semiconductor's market position in automotive sensing applications for advanced driver-assistant systems and autonomous driving with expanded capabilities in imaging, radar, and lidar. In the second half of 2018, ON Semiconductor is planning to introduce samples to the market that incorporate technology from the radar assets acquired in 2017.

“The entire SensL team, founded by Carl Jackson and led by Bryan Campbell, [has] done a great job in bringing silicon photomultipliers to market, and we look forward to expanding their market success and continuing their product portfolio in lidar, medical imaging, and radiation detection,” said Taner Ozcelik, senior vice president and general manager of ON Semiconductor’s Image Sensor Group. “The automotive sensor fusion demand is growing at an accelerated pace with a need for additional sensor technologies that are provided by the SensL team. Expanding our sensor technology assets and design capacity in Ireland will allow us to extend our leadership in established segments and to deliver new, world-class solutions for emerging segments.”

ON Semiconductor provides energy-efficient power management with analog, sensor, logic, timing, connectivity, system-on-chip, and custom devices.
