Photokina 2014: Leica and Fujitsu Semiconductor Extend Long-Standing Cooperation Focusing on Next Generation SoC

Leica and Fujitsu Semiconductor sign letter of intent on photokina 2014 to extend cooperation.

Langen, Germany, September 18, 2014 – Leica Camera AG („Leica“) and Fujitsu Semiconductor Europe (FSEU) today signed a letter of intent, expressing their plans to extend their longstanding cooperation. The partnership will focus on developing next generation System on Chips (SoC) for Leica“s leading-edge digital cameras for professional use. FSEU“s expertise in the area of leading semiconductor design, and especially in the area of digital camera image processor SoC, already resulted in the successful development of two generations of Camera SOCs.

Both companies have an ongoing cooperation since 2008. At Photokina 2014, they presented its latest result, a new Leica S camera that features the Leica MAESTRO II image processor. Small medium-format cameras such as the Leica S-System offer excellent imaging quality and user experiences due to the high-definition imagery, fast processing speeds, and low power consumption that the Fujitsu Milbeaut series of image processing devices for cameras is able to provide.

Markus Limberger, Chief Operating Officer in the Leica Camera board, comments: „In FSEU, we have found a strong and reliable technology partner who has proven its expertise and capabilities for state-of-the-art imaging solutions over the years in the context of our cooperation. We are highly committed on fostering this relationship. As expressed in the letter of intent, Leica will, subject to availability and commercial and technological fit, solely use FSEU products of this type of SoC for its professional camera solutions.“

Inoue Amane, Corporate Senior Vice President and President of System LSI Company at Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited comments: „FSEU will fully support Leica“s requirements while developing the next generation SoC Maestro III and respective firmware. Our team of dedicated hardware and software engineers will continue merging the strengths of FSEU“s image-processing technologies with Leica“s high-definition imaging technologies and offer an industry-leading image processing solution.“ By signing the letter of intent, FSEU also commits on using a production technology of 28nm or better for future developments and providing samples to Leica as early as possible, allowing Leica a quick development.
