MAGIC™ Technology

The NIT core technology, named MAGIC™ is the result of 15 years of continuous R&D investment performed by the VLSI R&D team of the French Institute of Telecommunication. All these R&D efforts and the associated patents have been entirely brought to NIT for exploitation. MAGIC™ is a breakthrough technology in which each pixel photodiode is used as an individual solar cell. The immediate benefits of this mode are:

  • Intrinsic high dynamic range of more than 120 dB in every pixel – no need for companion chips or complicated registers to setup
  • True and accurate logarithmic signal response to illumination without smearing or image lagging
  • No accommodation of ambient light variation and no noticeable fixed pattern noise within the image
  • Operability at high temperature (>90°C) without image degradation. There are no hot pixels or flickers appearing with increase of temperature
