Sony high speed CMOS sensor


Mark Peters : 2006-04-19 17:36:00
Sony high speed CMOS sensor : Starting with their adoption in cellular phones in 2002, Sony’s CMOS sensors for Megapixel camera phones, digital high definition video cameras, and Digital SLRs have become widely used in commercial products. The greatest strength of CMOS sensors is that by including both digital and analog circuits on the same chip, their readout speed can be made dramatically faster than that of CCD. Sony is now pushing forward with the development of high-speed CMOS sensors for digital cameras that can provide continuous imaging from all pixels at the high frame rate of 60 frame/s. Sony is also developing in parallel a camera digital signal processor (DSP) that can take full advantage of this performance.


Fujifilm CMOS Organic Image Sensor


Mark Peters : 2006-04-19 08:45:00
Fujifilm CMOS Organic Image Sensor : FujiFilm Japan has developed a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) sensor using an organic photoelectric conversion film, and successfully captured a monochrome image with it. A previous laboratory-level success in photographing with an organic photoelectric conversion film was made in combination with an imaging tube, by the Science & Technical Research Laboratories of Japan Broadcasting Corp. Instead of a CMOS circuit, however, that example used a 10cm-long imaging tube. Fuji Photo Film has encapsulated the organic photoelectric conversion film with a signal read circuit into a semiconductor package, making it much easier than an imaging tube to use in a compact consumer camera.

SMPD image sensor


Mark Peters : 2006-02-12 19:00:00
Planet82 Inc. announced the first U.S. demo of its highly sensitive image sensor, Single Carrier Modulation Photo Detector (SMPD), which uses nanotechnology to enable cameras to take high resolution photos or video in the dark, without a flash. The world's first chip of its kind, Planet82's SMPD image sensor is 2,000 times more sensitive to light than other image sensors. Until now, taking a picture in the dark without a flash or taking a picture of a candle-lit birthday cake without any other light in the room would yield a dark photograph. Planet82 makes it possible to take clear images even when the light level is less than 1 lux (or up to 0.1 lux). One lux is equivalent to the brightness from one candle one meter away in a dark room.
