Discover something new with an hCMOS detector

At Advanced hCMOS Systems, we help scientists and engineers measure ultrafast phenomena and improve their existing detector designs. We understand that off-the-shelf products are not always equipped to make the measurements you need at the required speeds or within your weight, volume, and power specifications.

With over a decade of experience working at national laboratories, we've designed award-winning ultrafast ASICs that enable scientists to make novel measurements previously thought impossible. For example, the Icarus imaging sensor has transformed the diagnostics at several HED laboratories in the US and France. 

Here's how we can help you:

  1. First, we'll work closely with you to understand your specific requirements and develop a list of specifications tailored to your needs.

  2. Next, we'll draft a proposal for your consideration and discuss the details with you to ensure it meets your expectations.

  3. Finally, upon design approval, we'll fabricate your custom solution and help you integrate it into your diagnostic instrument, ensuring you can make the exact measurements you need with the highest quality data.

Don't settle for inadequate, poor-quality data any longer. Let us design a purpose-built instrument tailored to your needs, so you can get the precise measurements you require. Contact us now, and let's get started!

Advanced hCMOS Systems is a highly collaborative engineering team that specializes in niche scientific detectors, which mainstream providers do not offer.  Learn more about the various research applications below.
