Etron Initiated HIDAS (Heterogeneous Integrated Design/Architecture/ System)

LyfieEye – World‘s First Spherical 360° Solution for Android SmartphonesWins COMPUTEX 2017 Best Choice Award and COMPUTEX d&i awards 2017For silicon-centric nano-systems in the new silicon age 4.0, HIDAS (Heterogeneous Integration Design/Architecture/ System) integration of Virtual Moore‘s Law Economy (VME) is gradually rising. Etron Technology, Inc. (Taiwan GTSM: 5351) successfully completed the HIDAS integration throughout its ICs, modules, and systems, and has delivered LyfieEye – The World‘s First Spherical 360° Picture and Video Solution for Android Smartphones. LyfieEye has been conferred the COMPUTEX 2017 Best Choice Award as the market-leading smallest, lightest, and most affordable solution for spherical 360° image and video recording. Additionally, LyfieEye has been awarded the COMPUTEX d&i awards 2017, by the Taiwan External Trade and Development Council (TAITRA) and iF World Design Guide (iF). LyfieEye was assessed against strict criteria of “Product Innovation”, “Functionality”, “Aesthetics”, “Responsibility” and “Market-Positioning”, and appraised by a jury comprising top industrial designers from around the world. Selected winners will receive their awards at the award presentation ceremony on 5/30. LyfieEye is now available for purchase on,, and PCHome24h. LyfieEye is the world‘s first camcorder that allows users to plug it directly into their Android-enabled smartphones. LyfieEye is easy to use and affordable for first-time users. With its dual lens technology – two wide-angle fisheye lenses capture 360-degree vertical and horizontal planes, with front and rear images simultaneously stitched into a seamless spherical 360° view. Powering LyfieEye is our patented IC chip which works to de-wrap and stitch images and videos as they are recorded. This is subsequently transmitted in real time to users‘ smartphone for simultaneous display. LyfieEye is easy to use: simply plug-in, record and share. It is efficient in optimally utilising the phone‘s battery and processing systems, without excessively depleting the phone‘s battery. It does not require Bluetooth and WiFi pairing, providing the convenience of immediate picture and video playback and sharing to social media platforms.The biggest factor differentiating LyfieEye from a standalone camera is its Micro USB Connector which plugs directly to Android smartphones. The LyfieEye Set includes: LyfieEye the Camera, LyfieLink the Extension Cable, the LyfieU2C Converter as well as the supporting APP, LyfieView, available for users to create and capture spherical 360 videos and images. In addition to spherical 360 view, LyfieView supports VR Cardboard mode as well as little planet mode to meet users‘ demand for VR360 content. Etron is fully harnessing the huge potential of semiconductors though its development of hardware, software and firmware. Entering the exciting era of 360VR, Etron will demonstrate its award-winning product – LyfieEye, at this year‘s COMPUTEX. We warmly welcome you to visit our booth No. D0334, Hall 1, TWTC, during COMPUTEX Taipei 2017 from May 30 to June 3.
