China, 4 November 2021 – ams AG (SIX: AMS), the world’s leading optical solutions leader, was invited to attend the 2021 Global CEO Summit & Global Distribution and Supply Chain Summit, which is hosted by AspenCore, a well-known media group in the global Electronic technology field. At the summit, the list of the 2021 Global Electronics Achievement Awards was announced, and ams and Osram won the “Best Electronics Enterprise of the Year” and “Sensor of the Year” in one fell swoop.
The World Electronics Achievement Awards aims to select and recognize companies and managers who have made outstanding contributions to promoting innovation in the global electronics industry. The entire selection lasts for several months and requires application, nomination, online voting, and global expert review. Filter layer by layer. The companies, managers and products nominated for various awards are industry leaders, and being recognized by the Global electronic Achievement Award is a well-recognized honor, which fully reflects its leading position and extraordinary performance in the industry.
“Sensor of the Year” for three consecutive years
The TSL2585, rated as “Sensor of the Year”, is a new miniature ambient light sensor from ams and Osram. It combines high-sensitivity ambient light detection, UVA sensing, 14kHz fast sampling ambient light flicker detection and silicon-based interference filtering technology. Mainly for consumer application scenarios such as wearable devices and smartphones.

The TSL2585 has a short integration time and high sensitivity, and can reliably detect ambient light even under low transmittance materials and OLED screens. In addition, the TSL2585 integrates light source flicker detection and is equipped with three modulators with sampling rates up to 14 kHz. By providing illuminance and ambient light stroboscopic information to the mobile phone camera, it can support fast automatic exposure of the smartphone camera, and can eliminate the ripple effect caused by the ambient lighting strobe.

This is the second time that ams Osram has won this award for its excellent products after the AS7341 multi-channel spectral sensor won the “Sensor of the Year 2019” and the TCS3408 color temperature and light source flicker detection sensor won the “Sensor of the Year 2020”.
“Electronics Company of the Year”, innovative optical solutions drive industry change
At this year’s double summit, ams Osram was selected as the “Best Electronics Company of the Year”. Pierre Laboisse, executive vice president of global sales and marketing at ams Osram, shared the new optical solutions from ams and Osram combining optics and sensing technology, and emphasized the important strategic position of the Chinese market.

Based on the three core technology platforms of sensing, light source and visualization, ams and Osram will continue to build a world-leading portfolio of optical solutions in the future. Among them, the sensing technology mainly covers 3D sensing, light sensing, OLED screen sensing, imaging sensing, spectral sensing; light source technology mainly covers LED (visible light/invisible light, Mini, Micro), VCSEL, EEL, special light source. ams Osram products and solutions cover four major areas: automotive, industrial, medical and consumer, covering autonomous driving, smart home, digital city, cloud computing, AloT and other application scenarios.
“We wanted to build an industry-leading portfolio – combining the sensing and light source technologies of ams and Osram – in a new solution that fuses emitters with optics, detectors, ICs and algorithmic technologies. Pierre Laboisse said that creating a complete optical solution for a customer is a test of the professional ability of the supplier’s system and the closeness of the contact with the customer.
Pierre Laboisse emphasized that the Chinese market is very important to ams and Osram. ams Osram has established extensive cooperation with Chinese partners in various fields. For example, in the field of cutting-edge CT imaging, ams Osram has cooperated with Chinese customers, and the cooperation results have reached the world’s leading level. In the field of autonomous driving, ams Osram has become a core lidar transmitter partner of Chinese lidar manufacturers. “We can provide the world’s leading emitter technology – high-power addressable VCSEL and wavelength-stabilized EEL. Currently, these two technologies have been widely recognized by Chinese customers and are helping Chinese companies build the most innovative lasers Radar Transmitter Technology Roadmap.”
At present, ams Osram has about 28 business locations in China, covering manufacturing plants, R&D centers and sales networks, with about 3,000 employees.
