CMOS Image sensor


A CMOS-based chip that records the intensities of light as variable charges similar to a CCD chip. Although initially used in less expensive digital cameras, the quality of CMOS sensors has improved steadily.

CMOS is a type of integrated circuit chip manufacturing process that can be used for many things, including digital camera image sensors. CMOS camera sensors are generally cheaper to manufacture than competing CCD based sensors. They also require less power to use than do CCD sensors, which makes them popular in mobile devices. The drawback to CMOS sensors when used in cameras is that they tend to create photographs with a lot of image noise when used in lower light situations, though this is not always the case. Canon, among others, has been using CMOS sensors in their high-end digital SLR cameras for years. Other companies are starting to follow suit. But as it stands today, in terms of mobile phones, most often a device with a CCD sensor will take better images than a comparable CMOS equipped model would. CMOS sensors have advantages over CCDs. They can be made like other CMOS chips on standard CMOS fabrication lines, which makes development less costly, and auxiliary circuitry, such as analog-to-digital conversion, can be combined on the same chip. In addition, CMOS chips use less power than CCDs.

No Charge Coupling:

Unlike CCD sensors, CMOS image sensors do not use charge coupling, which transfers charges to a second bank of photosites before sending them out for analog-to-digital conversion. Because they are standard CMOS chips, CMOS image sensors have amplifiers and output circuitry connected to each photosite. Contrast with CCD. See CMOS camera and digital camera.

An image sensor is a device that converts an optical image into an electronic signal. It is used mostly in digital cameras, camera modules and other imaging devices. Early analog sensors were video camera tubes; currently used types are semiconductor charge-coupled devices (CCD) or active pixel sensors in complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) or N-type metal-oxide-semiconductor (NMOS, Live MOS) technologies.

At present digital still cameras use either a CCD image sensor or a CMOS sensor.[citation needed] Both types of sensor accomplish the same task of capturing light and converting it into electrical signals.

Each cell of a CCD image sensor is an analog device. When light strikes the chip it is held as a small electrical charge in each photo sensor. The charges are converted to voltage one pixel at a time as they are read from the chip. Additional circuitry in the camera converts the voltage into digital information.

A CMOS imaging chip is a type of active pixel sensor made using the CMOS semiconductor process. Extra circuitry next to each photo sensor converts the light energy to a voltage. Additional circuitry on the chip may be included to convert the voltage to digital data.

Neither technology has a clear advantage in image quality. On one hand, CCD sensors are more susceptible to vertical smear from bright light sources when the sensor is overloaded; high-end CMOS sensors in turn do not suffer from this problem. On the other hand, cheaper CMOS sensors are susceptible to undesired effects that come as a result of rolling shutter.

CMOS sensors can potentially be implemented with fewer components, use less power, and/or provide faster readout than CCD sensors.[citation needed] CCD is a more mature technology and is in most respects the equal of CMOS. CMOS sensors are less expensive to manufacture than CCD sensors.

Hybrid CCD/CMOS architecture, sold under the name "sCMOS," consists of CMOS readout integrated circuits (ROICs) that are bump bonded to a CCD imaging substrate – a technology that was developed for infrared staring arrays and now adapted to silicon-based detector technology. Another approach is to utilize the very fine dimensions available in modern CMOS technology to implement a CCD like structure entirely in CMOS technology. This can be achieved by separating individual poly-silicon gates by a very small gap. These hybrid sensors are still in the research phase and can potentially harness the benefits of both CCD and CMOS imagers.

The newer sensor technology is Back-side illuminated CMOS (BSI-CMOS) which uses less electricity than traditional CMOS with better performance than CCD, so lower end cameras still use CCD sensors such as those implemented by Fujifilm in its Bridge cameras. CCD sensors are rarely used in new models, except for very high pixel count, big sensor cameras which still use CCDs.
