Course Instructor
SC1079: CMOS Image Sensor Architecture and Design for Scientific and Space Applications
This course provides attendees with an intermediate knowledge of CMOS image sensors and cameras for demanding applications including extremely low light levels, wide scene dynamic range, or harsh environmental conditions (high temperature, radiation exposure, etc.). The course describes recent advances in sensor and pixel architectures as well as the associated processing and software algorithms to achieve the required performance. The course provides examples of high performance image sensors along with the architectures, designs and technologies required to realize them. The current state-of-the-art of the technology is reviewed with a look at areas of research and trends.
SC905: CMOS Imaging Sensor Architecture, Construction, and Applications
This course provides a review of CMOS imager technologies looking at architectures, designs, and applications. Performance differences between different types of CMOS imaging arrays (3T, 4T, 5T, and 6T) are covered. CMOS imager architectures for the pixel design and readout circuitry are presented along with fundamental performance limitations and tradeoffs associated with each configuration. Pixel design layouts and physical stacks are shown for 3T, 4T, 5T, and 6T along with performance impacts associated with layout configurations. Different configurations of readout multiplexers are shown along with associated noise, speed, power, accuracy, and features. System applications are discussed along with system impacts associated with different sensor architectures. The current status of the technology is reviewed with a look at future research and development trends.
