Panasonic Develops Industry-First*1 123dB Simultaneous-Capture Wide-Dynamic-Range Technology Using an Organic-Photoconductive-Film CMOS Image Sensor
Panasonic Corporation today announced that it has developed a new
wide-dynamic-range technology that can improve
simultaneous-capture wide dynamic range 100 times wider
than conventional results can deliver, using a CMOS image sensor with an
organic photoconductive film (OPF) *2.
With an OPF CMOS image sensor, the charge-storage function and photoelectric-conversion function can be set independently. By utilizing this unique feature of the OPF CMOS image sensor, overexposure can be prevented under bright conditions with no time distortion against moving objects. Moreover, a sharp and texture-rich image can be reproduced even under dark conditions. These technologies enable high-speed, high-precision imaging with no time distortion in high-contrast scenes. - more -

This newly developed wide-dynamic-range technology enables accurate imaging and reproduction of a richer color tone, even under high-contrast conditions (backlit scene or under studio lighting). In addition, synthesizing multiple exposure data captured at different times is unnecessary, thus enabling the accurate imaging of moving objects at high speed. The technology therefore enables high-speed, high-precision, and wide-dynamic-range imaging and sensing.
This new technology offers the following advantages.
- Wide incident angle (60 degrees), high sensitivity, high saturation and highly-functional circuits due to a unique feature of OPF that allows an OPF for photoelectric-conversion and readout circuits to be independent.
- 123dB simultaneous-capture wide dynamic range (100x wider than that of common silicon image sensors*3), while maintaining conventional chip size, due to our original “simultaneous-capture structure.”
This wide-dynamic-range technology includes the following.
- OPF CMOS Image Sensor Design Technology, where the photoelectric-conversion part and circuit part can be designed independently.
- Dual-Sensitivity Pixel Technology featuring two sensitivity detection cells (one for brightness; one for darkness) in each pixel, taking advantage of the high-saturation performance and flexibility of the OPF CMOS image sensor sensitivity setting in order to achieve a simultaneous-capture wide dynamic range.
- Capacitive-Coupled Noise Canceller Technology that can cancel pixel reset noise to improve S/N characteristics when imaging dark objects.
Panasonic holds 58 Japanese patents and 44 overseas patents (including patents pending) related to this technology.
Panasonic presented some of these technologies at the international academic conference: ISSCC (International Solid-State Circuit Conference) 2016 that was held in San Francisco from January 31 - February 4, 2016.
*1: As of February 2, 2016, based on data available to Panasonic.
*2: We employ an organic photoconductive film (OPF) developed by FUJIFILM Corporation.
*3: Comparison with Panasonic silicon CMOS image sensor.

Takeda and TiGenix announce that Cx601 (darvadstrocel) has received a positive CHMP opinion to treat complex perianal fistulas in Crohn’s disease15.12.2017 12:34 | Pressemelding
Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TSE: 4502) (“Takeda”) and TiGenix NV (Euronext Brussels and NASDAQ: TIG) (“TiGenix”) today announced that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA), in conjunction with the Committee for Advanced Therapies (CAT), has adopted a positive opinion recommending a marketing authorization (MA) for investigational compound Cx601 (darvadstrocel). Cx601 is expected to be indicated for the treatment of complex perianal fistulas in adult patients with non-active/mildly active luminal Crohn’s disease, when fistulas have shown an inadequate response to at least one conventional or biologic therapy.2 This recommendation marks the first allogeneic stem cell therapy to receive a positive CHMP opinion in Europe.

Bitcoin Romania and Twispay Announce Integration Partnership Providing Users with the Ability to Purchase Bitcoin with Bank Cards15.12.2017 12:21 | Pressemelding
Bitcoin Romania, leading Eastern European Bitcoin exchange & brokerage firm, and Twispay, Swiss-owned European payment processor and FinTech pioneer, today announced the availability of a payment integration that allows a global clientele to acquire Bitcoin and Ethereum cryptocurrencies using Visa and Mastercard bank cards. Unprecedented in Romania, this is one of the first East-Central European integration partnerships that allow consumers to use their cards to purchase cryptocurrency. Until recently, investors could only acquire cryptocurrencies through bank transfers and cash deposits, but the volatility of cryptocurrency markets dictates the need for additional operational flexibility. Investors require faster, safer, more reliable, and more comfortable ways to complete purchases. “One minute can make the difference between a million lost and a million earned. That is pr
Upon Conclusion of the Fourth Annual Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies, Scholars and Intellectuals Visit the Louvre Abu Dhabi Museum15.12.2017 11:38 | Pressemelding

Kennedy Wilson Acquires 124-Unit Northbank Apartments in Dublin, Ireland for €45 Million15.12.2017 11:00 | Pressemelding
Global real estate investment company Kennedy Wilson (NYSE: KW) announces that it has acquired Northbank Apartments, a wholly-owned 124-unit apartment community in Dublin’s North Docks, for €45 million from Jarmar Properties Limited (In Receivership) acting through David Carson of Deloitte as Statutory Receiver, the lender being the National Asset Management Agency (“NAMA”). Situated in Dublin’s North Docks, Northbank is located just 50 meters from Kennedy Wilson’s existing 84-unit Liffey Trust apartments. The two buildings benefit from great transport links as the LUAS Red line is immediately adjacent connecting to Dublin’s city centre and main train stations in five minutes. “The successful acquisition of Northbank in such close proximity to our Liffey Trust asset allows us to leverage our existing presence and implement our value-add asset management strategy, including a
