2022 Automotive Sensor Chip Industry Report - With the Improvement of the Autonomous Driving Level the Demand for Sensor Chips in Vehicles Will Keep Rising -

·5-min read

DUBLIN, May 16, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Automotive Sensor Chip Industry Research Report, 2022" report has been added to's offering.

Automotive sensor chips can obtain external environment data for autonomous vehicles and improve the safety of autonomous driving as an indispensable part of autonomous vehicles. With the improvement of the autonomous driving level, the demand for sensor chips in vehicles will keep rising, and the requirements on product performance will also become higher and higher.

With the fast development of autonomous driving technology, the number of automotive cameras is gradually increasing. The higher the level of autonomous driving, the greater the demand for cameras. At present, all OEMs are actively deploying L3/L4 production autonomous models, which means the demand for automotive CIS chips is enormous.

At present, the automotive CIS market is almost monopolized by oligarchs, with ON Semiconductor occupying nearly 60% market share. Traditional mobile phone camera CIS vendors such as Sony and Samsung have entered the automotive market, and the market share of OmniVision, a subsidiary of Will Semiconductor, is also increasing.

Sony entered the field of automotive CIS in 2015, and has mass-produced IMX490, IMX324 and other automotive CIS. NVIDIA's DRIVE Hyperion 8.1 platform launched in 2021 may use Sony's CIS IMX728 for the front-view camera and IMX623 for the fisheye camera.

In addition to CIS, Sony has also dabbled in the LiDAR chip market. In the first half of 2022, Sony plans to launch the IMX459 1/2.9-type (6.25 mm diagonal) stacked SPAD depth sensor for automotive LiDAR applications using direct Time-of-Flight (dToF) method. By leveraging Sony's technologies such as a back-illuminated pixel structure, stacked configurations, and Cu-Cu connections created in the development of CMOS image sensors, Sony has succeeded in a unique device construction that includes SPAD pixels and distance measuring processing circuit on a single chip.

In July 2021, Samsung introduced ISOCELL Auto 4AC, an automotive image sensor. It comes in a 1/3.7-inch optical format with 1.2 million 3.0-micrometer (μm) pixels. With the CornerPixelT technology, it embeds two photodiodes within a single pixel area: one 3.0μm pixel for viewing low light images, and a 1.0μm pixel placed at the corner of the big pixel for brighter environments.

CIS has been out of stock for the past two years and the shortage will continue for some time. In the face of problems such as lack of chips for foreign-funded enterprises and rising product prices, Chinese local enterprises have seen development opportunities.

At CES 2022, OmniVision demonstrated an 8-megapixel automotive front-view camera system for the first time. Using next-generation OX08B40 CMOS image sensors, the system is powered by Xilinx MPSoC and Motovis IP. It will help OmniVision in the 8-megapixel high-end market to compete with ON Semiconductor.

At the end of 2021, SmartSens Technology launched SC101AP, a three-in-one image sensor with integrated ISP and TX functions for automotive applications. The sensor has an optical size of 1/4.2 inches and a pixel size of 2.9μm. It supports video recording and shooting with a resolution of 1MP and 30 frames per second. Its sensitivity has improved by 53%, and the quantum efficiency has leveled up by 31%. SmartSens Technology will release a number of automotive products in 2022, including 8-megapixel ADAS products which are under development, and will be mass-produced in 2023.
