ams Showcases How Sensor Solutions Enable “Intelligent Connectivity” at MWC 2019

Multiple world-first sensor innovations meet next-gen consumer demands

PREMSTAETTEN, Austria–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ams (SIX: AMS), a leading worldwide supplier of high performance sensor
solutions, will showcase several industry-first technologies for mobile
devices at MWC 2019 in Barcelona later this month. Digital
transformation influences every existing business model and the emerging
use case scenarios of tomorrow depend on the combination of sensor
technology and the promise of 5G, so ams is investing to drive
innovation in sensor solutions on behalf of its many customers in the
mobile industry.

ams customers will experience ground-breaking sensor solutions for
mobile, computing and consumers. This includes: highly advanced 3D
technology for smart phones, computing, automotive and robotics; behind
OLED solutions for bezel-less phones; color sensors that enhance
pictures to professional levels; the tiny, yet powerful earbud
technology for a relaxing ANC experience (digital and analog) and
medical-grade wearable devices that monitor blood pressure. The company
will also showcase how this technology can be used in white goods,
industrial and automotive areas. Show visitors can see how ams advances
in industry-leading 3D technology will be used in the specialized
applications of tomorrow: from solid-state LiDAR to 3D car access and
commands, to 3D solutions and advanced hearing for Robotics and AI.

“We invest to remain at the forefront of technology to create new market
trends, and what we are showing at MWC is the result: ground-breaking
sensor solutions touch every aspect of people’s lives to make things
simpler, more autonomous, and fun,” says Alexander Everke, CEO at ams.
“Our solutions help our customers differentiate their brands, while
providing real ‘fun-factor’ ingredients that excite users of new
