AMS designs and manufactures high-performance sensor solutions for applications requiring the highest level of miniaturization, integration, accuracy, sensitivity and lower power.
AMS´ products include sensor solutions, sensor ICs, interfaces and related software for mobile, consumer, communications, industrial, medical, and automotive markets. AMS advanced developments drive worldwide leading applications requiring small form factor, low power, highest sensitivity and multi-sensor integration being present with optical sensors in the most advanced smartphones.
AMS’ headquarters are located in Premstätten near Graz, Austria, with a state-of-the art 200mm CMOS manufacturing line including optical interference filter and post-processing capabilities. Key research and development facilities are based at the headquarter in Austria covering technology R&D and IC design development departments together with 18 design centres worldwide. With ams Int. AG CH (former Heptagon) in Rüschlikon AMS operates an R&D centre developing advanced optical components and packages for highest level of sensor miniaturization. With the acquisition of Princeton Optronics, US in 2017 AMS extended its portfolio for optical sensing with state-of-the art VCSEL (vertical cavity surface emitting laser) emitter solutions providing industry leadership when it comes to VCSEL array power density, conversion efficiency and pitch.
Employing worldwide >8,500 people, AMS operates direct sales offices in all major regions of the world. AMS revenue in 2019 exceeded 2.0B$ with a major contribution from advanced consumer and mobile sensor device solutions.
AMS launched in 2019 an offer for the takeover of OSRAM Licht AG to create a new global leader in sensor solutions and photonics. The acquisition is expected to be finalized in 2020.
AMS is listed on the SIX Swiss stock exchanges.
