Digital linearity correction of a wide dynamic range current-mode image sensor

Proceedings of the 8th IEEE International NEWCAS Conference 2010, 2010

A method for linearity correction of a three-transistor wide dynamic range current-mode active pixel sensor is proposed. The pixel uses a PMOS readout transistor in the linear region of operation and a PMOS reset transistor that allows for a liner-logarithmic response. One of the non-linearity contributions is the effect caused by the `on' resistance of the select transistor. To eliminate ...

  • Digital linearity correction of a wide dynamic range current-mode image sensor

    A method for linearity correction of a three-transistor wide dynamic range current-mode active pixel sensor is proposed. The pixel uses a PMOS readout transistor in the linear region of operation and a PMOS reset transistor that allows for a liner-logarithmic response. One of the non-linearity contributions is the effect caused by the `on' resistance of the select transistor. To eliminate this effect, we apply a linearization function that can be performed in the digital domain. This paper discusses the sensor architecture, the pixel's design and its operation. Experimental results of the current response before and after linearization are presented. The pixel was implemented in the AMS CMOS 0.35μm process from Austrian Microsystem. The pixel size is 12×12 μm, with a fill factor of 37%.

  • Jim Blinn's Corner-a trip down the graphics pipeline: subpixelic particles

    Reasons for subdividing pixels into subpixelic particles are discussed. Working with subpixel resolution in the floating-point domain is suggested as the easiest approach. To illustrate the use of floating-point pixel space, the arithmetic of two rendering algorithms is reviewed. The algorithms are an antialiased line renderer and a simple polygon tiler. Another use for subpixel resolution, i.e., doing antialiasing by subsampling is also considered. Using integer arithmetic in addition to subsampling is briefly discussed.<<ETX>>

  • Ultra thin fully depleted active pixel sensors processed on SOI wafers

    The production of the latest generation of fully depleted DEPFET active pixel sensors designed for the Belle-II experiment at KEK, Japan, is currently being finalized. For the first time a thinning technology based on SOI wafers finds now its application in a high energy physics experiment. The DEPFET (DEpleted P-channel FET) is a field effect transistor with an additional implant underneath the channel and integrated on a fully depleted substrate. It combines the functions of a detector and the first amplification stage in one single device. The in-sensor amplification makes it possible to create very thin sensors with an excellent signal/noise ratio for minimum ionizing particles. The fabrication of thin wafer-scale active pixel sensors requires the combination of a highly specialized MOS technology, including two poly- silicon and three metal layers, on fully depleted bulk with MEMS technologies. The devices are realized on custom-made SOI wafers with structured back side implant supplied by Soitec, France. Initially developed for thin DEPFETs, the technology is now being used for the production of other high performance sensors in High Energy Physics (strip and passive pixel detectors) and photon counting devices based on Geiger-mode avalanche photo diodes. Other fields of application are all kind of thin imaging devices for low energy particles (electron microscopy or in medical hadron therapy).

  • Two Dimensional Kalman Filter Approach for Phase Unwrapping of TerraSAR-X Data

    Against the background of availableness of good resolved SAR image pairs which come from the German radar satellite TerraSAR-X, we investigate in solving the problem of unwrapping the phase image obtained from a noisy interferometric SAR (InSAR) image. A Kalman filter based data fusion approach to unwrap and simultaneously filter the phases of interferometric SAR images is developed. The data fusion concept exploits phase information, extracted from the complex interferogram rather than from the phase image and fuses that information with phase slope information extracted from the power spectral density of the interferogram.

  • Fractals: not just another pretty picture

    The reduction of imagery to a set of fractals as a way to achieve greatly improved image compression is examined. A practical system that took about 100 hours to compress a 780-by-1024-pixel image, but achieved compression ratios greater than 1000 to 1, was demonstrated. The performance of the approach and the extent of its applicability are discussed. Some military applications of fractals are briefly discussed.<<ETX>>
