InVisage Technologies, Inc. is a venture-backed fabless semiconductor company based in Menlo Park, Calif.that is developing QuantumFilm, a breakthrough imaging-sensing technology that will replace silicon. Its first product enables high-fidelity, high resolution images from handheld devices like camera phones and PDAs. Founded in 2006, InVisage Technologies is venture funded by RockPort Capital, Charles River Ventures, InterWest Partners, and OnPoint Technologies.

QuantumFilm was developed by InVisage after years of research under the guidance of notable scientist and InVisage CTOTed Sargent. It is based on quantum dots -- semiconductors with unique light-capture properties. It works by capturing an imprint of a light image, and then employing the silicon beneath it to read out the QuantumFilm and turn it into versatile digital signals. InVisage spent three years engineering the quantum dot material to produce highly-sensitive image sensors that integrate with standard CMOSmanufacturing processes. The first application of QuantumFilm will enable high pixel count and high performance in tiny form factors, breaking silicon's inherent performance-resolution tradeoff.
