A leap forward in experimental neuroscience

The collaboration between Paradromics and Caeleste has resulted in the largest ever recording in the cortex of a sheep.

More than 31,000 electrode potentials were recorded simultaneously showing the reaction of the animal to auditory stimuli.

Caeleste designed the low-noise, high-speed CMOS interface circuit for this recording: the circuit amplifies the neural signals captured by the electrode array and multiplexes them on a high-speed bus.

Caeleste strengthens the management team

Caeleste is strengthening its business development team by hiring Jeroen Hoet as new Chief Business Development Officer, leading Caeleste’s marketing and sales department. Based in Belgium, Jeroen is well known in the semiconductor industry and has gained deep knowledge on vision technologies and custom chip design through similar positions at leading machine vision and ASIC design companies.

Caeleste and Advacam announced their collaboration on the development of a Hybrid Visible CMOS image sensor for future space and science missions.

The combination of Advacam’s advanced capabilities in hybridization of Silicon on Silicon and Caeleste’s image sensor know-how for space applications allows ESA to start the project AO/1-9801/19/NL/AR “Development of a Hybrid Visible Image Sensor”. Hybrid image sensor technology makes the best of both worlds available; it offers the ability to independently customize the performance of both the ROIC and the detection layer from soft X-rays over ultraviolet to near-infrared.

ESA wants to develop and safeguard the hybrid Silicon-on-Silicon technology. It is expected that such detector would have a wide range of applications for Earth observation, as well as astronomy and planetary applications.


Patent “Enhanced dynamic range imaging” granted

US patent US10.497.737 entitled “enhanced dynamic range imaging” was granted on Dec 3, 2019.

It describes a pixel and methods to reach a very high dynamic range (HDR) by integrating the same photo charge on multiple capacitors synchronously.  The concept reminds other Caeleste HDR methods (patents US9.780.138, US9.699.398, US9.819.882, BE1023468), yet uses a conceptually different approach.
