How important are smartphone cameras in our lives? The one word answer: Very. One attempt to quantify how many smartphone photos are taken every day estimates it’s about four billion a day, or about 1.4 trillion images a year.
To further deepen its optoelectronics expertise and meet rising customer demand, Ofilm in 2017 created a subsidiary to design, manufacture and package optical lenses. This has grown into one of Ofilm’s largest activities.
Ofilm Micro Systems is the Ofilm subsidiary developing and manufacturing industry-leading advanced sensor solutions. Ofilm is worldwide market leader in the fingerprint sensor modules commonly found in smartphones.
Ofilm has been a significant player in the global touchscreen industry for over a decade. Beginning in 2010, we expanded our R&D and manufacturing capability significantly to help drive the large-scale adoption in the smartphone industry and elsewhere.
Much has been written about how Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) will one day transform the ways we learn, communicate and play. Ofilm shares this vision, and we have especially deep expertise in many of the contributing technologies.
Ofilm entered the automotive electronics industry in 2015. Its R&D and sales efforts are spread globally among the US, Germany and China.
