Foveon X3 Technology - The Revolution in Color Imaging

  X3 pixel planes

The Foveon X3 CMOS direct sensor technology represents a revolution in the detection of color data.  Previously, single-chip color sensors required four pixels to detect the full range of color and full-resolution color required expensive, bulky multichip cameras.  With the Foveon X3 direct color imaging technology, sensors can now detect full color at every pixel.

The result is more accurate color detail without color aliasing, very simple color matrix processing and high net quantum efficiency.

Only Foveon X3 direct image sensors have this new technology and only Alternative Vision has the development tools to help you implement it in your designs.
