Overview

We were incorporated in May 1995. We design, develop and market high
performance, high quality, highly integrated and cost efficient semiconductor
image sensor devices. Our single chip image sensors are used in a variety of
electronic cameras and camera related products for both still picture and live
video applications. Our image sensors are used in cameras and camera related
products such as personal computer cameras, digital still cameras, closed
circuit TVs, mobile phone cameras, personal digital assistant cameras, security
and surveillance cameras and toy cameras. Our image sensors are designed to use
the complementary metal oxide semiconductor fabrication process, a new, easier
to use semiconductor technology for image sensors. Our single chip image
sensors can allow our customers to build cameras that are smaller, require
fewer chips, consume less power and cost less to build than cameras using
traditional charged couple device technology, or multiple chip complementary
metal oxide semiconductor image sensors. Unlike competitive image sensors,
which require multiple chips to achieve the same functions we are able to
integrate nearly all camera functions into a single chip. This leads us to
believe that we supply the most highly integrated single chip complementary
metal oxide semiconductor image sensor solution.

Image sensors are characterized by several important attributes such as
picture resolution, color, lens size, voltage requirements and type of video
output. We intend to continue developing new products aimed at new and existing
markets. We plan to expand the range of picture resolutions we offer, provide
additional products that require only three volts for portable applications and
further improve image quality and integrate additional functions into our image
sensor. In addition, we developed and market an interface chip that can easily
connect a camera to the universal serial bus on personal computers, and we plan
to make improvements to that product as well.
