Canon Inc. recently announced that it has developed a new CMOS sensor equipped with a global shutter function that enables the capture of distortion-free images even when shooting fast-moving objects. Employing a new signal-readout drive system and new pixel structure that significantly expands the full well capacity and reduces noise, the sensor contributes to high-image-quality video capture by making possible the realization of a wide dynamic range.
Canon Inc. recently developed the new APS-H-size (approx. 29.2 x 20.2 mm) CMOS sensor incorporating approximately 250 million pixels (19,580 x 12,600 pixels), which is the world's highest number of pixels1 for a CMOS sensor smaller than the size of a 35mm full-frame sensor.
While digital CCD image sensors have been around for decades, CMOS Image Sensor (CIS) technologies become more advanced and capable, they are becoming the design choice for many applications. Today’s advanced CISs are available with more than 100MP on the commercial market. This white paper presents important considerations to make in the design selection phase of high resolution CIS devices, especially in regard to size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C).
CMOS sensors from Canon feature proprietary innovations at the pixel-level that translate into industry-leading performance in advanced industrial, medical, and scientific applications.
In the past decade, CMOS sensors have emerged as the imaging technology of choice for many applications. Today, they are not only used in almost all cell phones and mobile devices, but are also commonly found in industrial and medical cameras.
CMOS Image sensors with a global shutter are ideal for a variety of applications, including factory automation, unmanned aerial vehicles, and automobile driver-assistance systems.
Part 2 of the series describing advancements in CMOS sensors and processing focuses on a new Super 35 mm CMOS image sensor that is specifically developed to support origination of high dynamic range (HDR) motion imagery.
New Canon technology has exploited a large 35 mm Full Frame CMOS image sensor with spatial sampling of 1920 (H) x 1080 (V) to acquire a distinctively large photosite of 19 um x 19 um, which enabled development of an HD camera with unprecedented sensitivity.
