CMOS-Based Image Sensors
Abstract:CMOS-based image sensors have recently emerged as strongest counterparts to CCDs (Charge Coupled Devices) thanks to great improvements in image quality. The CMOS-based image sensors are generally featured by (1) fast parallel readout, (2) low power consumption and (3) on-chip peripheral circuit capability. Also, for D-SLR (Digital-Single Lens Reflex) cameras, “stitching technology” allows only CMOS-based image sensors to provide practical 35mm-format imagers. The CMOS-based image sensors are starting to contend with CCDs in small pixels such as less than 3um. Different pixel shrinkage schemes have been proposed along with process design rule miniaturization. Market demands and intense competition will continue to be the main factors to drive the technologies of CMOS-based image sensors.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
