  1. Technology Advances Lead To CMOS Sensor With Record Resolution

    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.

  2. Considering High Dynamic Range Global Shutter CMOS Sensors

    CMOS Image sensors with a global shutter(GS)  - used to avoid image degradation caused by rolling shutter (RS) distortion - are ideal for applications including factory automation, UAVs, and automobile advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). 

  3. Advances In CMOS Image Sensors And Associated Processing: Part 2

    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. Another development is two separate photodiodes within each photosite that is essential for achieving the 15-stop dynamic range, and supports a unique in-sensor phase detection strategy that closes a focus control loop around the cine lens.

  4. Advances In CMOS Image Sensors And Associated Processing: Part 1

    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.
