Cost

Leveraging the unique characteristics of the patented Active Thermal Principle and the production processes of existing, depreciated, high quality, high yield display fabs NEXT manufacture high quality sensors at significantly lower cost than all other known high performance sensor suppliers.

 

NEXT sensors are manufactured in sheets of as much as 840 sensors per sheet. The materials are relatively low cost and the production process highly mature and optimized for cost-efficiency to fit the display market.

 

Each sensor is sold with a small companion ASIC. This ASIC has multiple functions including analogue to digital conversion of the sensor signals. The ASIC comes in different versions and are mass produced by leading silicon foundries like TSMC and X-FAB.

Scalability

Given that the NEXT mass production partners of sensors and ASICs are world leading players serving high-volume markets, volumes can relatively easily be scaled to meet virtually any demand.
