Abstract
The artificial retina chip, consisting of an array of variable sensitivity photo-detector cells (VSPD), attains versatile focal plane image processing using vector-matrix multiplication. We designed an n-MOS VSPD with a pn photodiode and a differential amplifier, which realizes programmable positive and negative sensitivity. The pixels of the fabricated 256 multiplied by 256 pixel artificial retina chip are 35 multiplied by 26 micrometers squared with a 25% aperture ratio in a 2 micrometer n-MOS process. The photosensitivity is 0.23 (mu) A/lx for 1 ms accumulation time. We demonstrate image capture in 'video mode' and 'edge extraction mode.'
