CMOS Technology Brings New Opportunities for Consumer Imaging

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

Demand for smaller, high-quality devices is driving development of chip improvements.

Paolo Vasta, Eastman Kodak Co.

Although CCD sensors had been the technology of choice for imaging devices for years, CMOS-based sensors have emerged as a viable alternative. CMOS sensors offer a number of intrinsic advantages relative to CCDs, including low power consumption and the ability to integrate system functions — timing and image processing, for example — directly on the chip. They have suffered from imaging performance that lags in comparison with what is available from CCDs, but advances in their design have improved the technology’s imaging capabilities dramatically — a development that has significance for the...Read full article
