IRLYNX designs and sells advanced human activity sensing modules.
The French start-up, created in 2012, based in Grenoble, offers to interactive product makers’ news capabilities to sense, understand and characterize motion and behavior of their users in the vicinity of their systems.
Based on disruptive technology with thermal vision capability, IRLYNX products are simplest, more reliable and price compatible with high volume markets, allowing our customers to deliver new usages, news services and new experiences. Applications are various, especially in smart buildings around energy saving, safety, security and assisted living.
IRLYNX’s first product is an optoelectronic module including a far IR reactive matrix combined with optics and embedded processing, delivering presence, position, motion direction and number of human in the field.
The sensor technology is based on industrial technology developed for fingerprint application by Atmel and e2v, now that have stopped their production. IRLYNX has got an exclusive license from e2v, to continue technology development and the previous application like fingerprint, and make new applications like IR and piezoelectric sensors. IRLYNX being fabless, has setup strong relations with a CMOS foundry (LFOUNDRY) and some laboratories like CEA/LETI. IRLYNX realizes itself the complete conception of the Silicon chips and modules, its electro/optical characterization and, defines and drives the technology requirements and developments.
