CCD in digital cameras & camcorders|
CCDs have been successful as well, especially in traditional point-and-shoot digital still cameras, camcorders, and security cameras. However, none of these applications are growing at nearly the rate of camera phones, leaving CCDs behind. In markets for linear image sensors, CCDs have been successful in speed applications such as digital copiers and flatbed scanners, while CIS have been more popular in cost-sensitive applications, including fax machines and multifunction peripherals.
CCD, CMOS & CIS image sensors
This report provides a complete review of the 2004 market for image sensors, as well as annual forecast numbers through 2009. CCD, CMOS and CIS market shares for each application, in both units and revenues, are provided annually for the entire forecast period. Profiles of the world’s leading image sensor suppliers are also presented.
CMOS in web cameras and camera phones
While CMOS has surpassed CCDs, CCDs are not going away. They maintain substantial market share in many camera applications, including mainstream digital still cameras, security cameras, and camcorders. CMOS sensors are having success in other camera markets as well, including low-end digital still cameras and Web cameras. Even with its increasing market share, CMOS revenues will be less than CCD revenues through 2005, due to high CCD volumes and ASPs in markets such as digital still cameras and security cameras.
