  • Imaging solutions including CCD and CMOS sensors and cameras, for space and earth observation imaging, science and life science imaging, machine vision, ophthalmology and dental x-ray systems.
  • Semiconductor solutions for aerospace and defence programmes requiring: lifecycle management, hi-rel microprocessors, high speed data converters, high reliability ICs with lifetime continuity of supply, assembly and test services and MRAMs.

We employ approximately 1,750 people across 10 countries in Europe, America and Asia, have annual sales of £225m, and are listed on the London Stock Exchange.

Sales and technical support are provided by four global sales and support territory bases to a total of more than 50 countries.

As a result of our track record of innovation and technological breakthroughs, e2v continues to be involved in many high-profile ground-breaking programmes, including:

  • Airbus A380
  • Boeing 757, 767, 747, 777, and in the new 787
  • European Space Agency Gaia mission to map our galaxy
  • US Patriot air and missile defence system
  • Eurofighter Typhoon
  • Hubble space telescope upgrade project

Our success is built on long-established relationships with industry partners: for example with Freescale Semiconductor, to develop and supply extended reliability versions of their microprocessors.

The combination of our in-house technical capability (which has resulted in nearly 200 patent families being granted to the e2v group), and links with technical authorities and universities, ensures that we can bring together the right level of expertise for a diverse range of technical challenges.
