Newsight is a designer, developer, and manufacturer of advanced CMOS image sensor chips for 3D machine vision and spectral analysis.




Newsight’s depth camera sensors for machine vision serve verticals such as Automotive Safety, Industry 4.0, Smart City & Robotics, Mobile, Metaverse and more. The company recently launched its one-of-a-kind solid-state LiDAR reference design, the eTOF™ LiDAR, based on the NSI1000 sensor. Also, Newsight has shortly introduced the highly anticipated NSI9000 chip. This chip provides an ultimate depth resolution of close to 500 thousand pixels and has already gained a lot of buzz and excitement from potential users and big industry leaders.

Newsight’s Spectral business unit specializes in creating unique spectral sensing sensors backed by AI technology that have multiple uses in rapid pathogen detection and in continuous, condition-based monitoring of fluid flows, including water quality. The technology has resulted in the launching of two Joint Ventures – Virusight and Watersight – based on Newsight’s Technology, both with highly respected governmental companies.

Newsight’s unique combination of great performance and attractive price is granting the company growing recognition as one of the leading companies to watch in the semiconductor industry. For example, the company was awarded the Frost and Sullivan 2022 Leadership Award for the leading European automotive sensor category and was selected as one of the 100 startups to follow in 2022 by EETimes Magazine.The Company has US and EU patents and has received multiple grants by the Israeli Innovation Authority. As Newsight continues to grow, it is planning to incorporate its technology in self-designed, developed, and manufactured products.

On August 30, 2022, Newsight Imaging announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to become publicly listed through a merger transaction with Vision Sensing Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: VSAC), a publicly traded special purpose acquisition company. The transaction is expected to close as early as the fourth quarter of 2022, at which point the combined company’s common stock is expected to trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the ticker symbol “NSIM”.
