trinamiX GmbH was founded in 2015 and is a wholly owned subsidiary of BASF SE. We are operationally independent and at the same time have access to the expertise and experience of BASF Group. What drives us?


With our technologies we strive to enable humans and machines to capture and understand the world - for improved decision-making and security.


Our passion and competence are 3D and infrared sensing technologies. Our production and development facility is in Ludwigshafen/Rhein, Germany.


Infrared sensing with Hertzstück™ detectors
Our lead salt detector Hertzstück™ is a short-wave infrared semi-conductor sensor for 1 – 5 µm wavelength. Hertzstück™ detectors are protected by a novel thin-film encapsulation that ensures high stability and long lifetime.


Hertzstück™ is the first bare chip lead salt photoconductor that can be wire-bonded to printed circuit boards without compromising the performance. The detectors do not require cooling as their detectivity at room temperature meets the highest demands. Their small footprint as bare chip enables novel applications and miniaturization.

The detectors can be customized and are available as bare chip, in TO encapsulation with and without cooling, in different geometries and pitches as well as with or without filters.  Arrays and array modules are available up to 512 pixels and pixel pitches starting from 50 µm. Further customization is possible.

3D sensing with beam profile analysis
Our 3D sensing systems determine distance from beam profile properties and work with wavelengths from visible to infrared.


trinamiX 3D imaging system combines 2D image and depth detection with material classification within one sensor. It can be used for bin picking, robot vision and object recognition and face authentification.


trinamiX also offers a fiber optic sensor which is the world’s first system to measure absolute distance through optical fibers.
