Deep Insights into CMOS Sensors

basics training (EN)

Features, possibilities, limitations and optimisation of CMOS sensors

June 29th to 30th 2016

Speaker: Dr. Albert Theuwissen


CMOS image sensors can be found in many applications, ranging from consumer to professional.  And actually over time, more applications with solid-state imagers will be added.  That means that more engineers are going to be exposed to the solid-state imaging technology.
This course is intended to make the newcomers in the field familiar with the ins and outs of CMOS image sensor technology.  The two day training is held by the imaging-expert Dr. Albert Theuwissen in English. After a short introduction the course will focus on the general working principles of the CMOS imagers as well as on the detailed description of the pixel structure.  Main question will be: what can be done with these pixels and what are the practical limits?

Next the general imaging characteristics will be discussed as their dark current, anti-blooming, global shutter, rolling shutter, several fixed-pattern as well as temporal noise sources.  At the end of the course, a specification of an existing CMOS image sensor will be analyzed.  To make the course as interactive as possible, participants can bring their own sensor specification that can be analyzed and discussed in the class room.
