CREAPYX is the pixel development platform of PYXALIS: This is an ultra-fast pixel prototyping vehicle with extreme flexibility.

the CreaPYX plateform is dedicated for new pixel development. Have an idea for a new pixel concept ? We can prototype it in record time and deliver you not only the pixel to your specification, but also a complete camera, ready for experimentation, evaluation or event your own client demonstration!

This unique, affordable pixel short loop solution has seen more than 40 successful Tape-out with 400+ pixel variants on library in 3 different foundries and 5 CMOS image sensor processes. it is fast, efficient and reliable.
