Tessera Technologies acquires technology assets from Pelican Imaging Corp.



Tessera Technologies Inc. has acquired the technology assets and substantial patent portfolio of Pelican Imaging Corp., a privately held inventor of depth-sensing multi-camera imaging technologies for mobile, drones, automotive, and AR/VR devices. Pelican’s advanced imaging solutions provide pixel-level 3D depth information. It delivers post-capture image refocus, focus on multiple subjects, and depth measurement capabilities.
The addition of Pelican’s advanced imaging technologies will enable Tessera, through its FotoNation subsidiary, to accelerate development of high performance, low power computational imaging solutions for use in next generation applications and devices.
“This acquisition shows our commitment to further invest in strategically building our growing portfolio of multi-camera and smart imaging solutions,” said Tom Lacey, CEO of Tessera. “We will integrate Pelican’s advanced imaging technologies and engineering talent with FotoNation, to accelerate the development of deeper and more feature-rich solutions.”
