ams is a fabless semiconductor company with an established high-volume supply chain that is qualified to ISO:9001, ISO:14001 as well as TS16949.

The technology developed by ams offers a radical step change in performance when compared to the competition; this has opened up multiple markets which previously were unserviceable. Ultra-low power consumption, fast response time, embedded intelligence and ultra-small form factor has enabled the growth of new application areas for improved health and wellbeing such as; ambient air quality monitoring and breath analysis, in smartphones, tablets, wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

With a seasoned semiconductor management team, who are experienced in delivering high-volume products to markets such as Consumer, Automotive and Industrial applications, the company develops partnerships with its customers to meet and exceed their expectations. With headquarters in Austria, ams has implemented an extensive global sales network to meet global customer demands.

Wrapped around ams’s core technology, intelligent system solutions are developed that are easily integrated into customer products which drive, measure and interpret the sensing elements to provide optimized, solutions for Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) monitoring, Breath Analysis and monitoring air pollution levels.

ams are currently an active in the semiconductor and gas sensor community being a member of the MEMS Industry Group (MIG), Cambridge Cleantech, and are a member of the Gas Analysis & Sensing Group (GASG).
