This paper presents a new 2-step SAR ADC architecture for image sensors in machine vision applications. This structure effectively improves the structural problems of the image sensor caused by the area occupied by the ADC, such as linearity and temporal noise performance. In this work, we designed a two-step SAR ADC using a 6-bit SAR ADC and...

This paper presents a novel technique for dark current compensation of a CMOS image sensor (CIS) by using in-pixel temperature sensors (IPTSs) over a temperature range from −40 °C to 90 °C. The IPTS makes use of the 4T pixel as a temperature sensor. Thus, the 4T pixel has a double functionality, either as a pixel or as a temperature sensor....

This thesis presents a temperature-dependent reference control method to compensate for the temperature effect on CMOS image sensors from -40◦C to 125◦C. Recently, machine vision has been one of the most important applications for CMOS image sensors. However, the working environment and operation might generate large temperature variations and...

This article focuses on the angular dependency of the light sensitivity of a commercially available CMOS camera with a global shutter (storage node (SG) in the charge domain) and shared pixel architecture. The angular dependency is characterized as a function of both the wavelength and the angle of incidence of the incoming light. The...

This thesis describes the integration of temperature sensors into a CMOS image sensor (CIS). The temperature sensors provide the in-situ temperature of the pixels as well as the thermal distribution of the pixel array. The temperature and the thermal distribution are intended to be used to compensate for dark current affecting the CIS. Two...

This letter introduces a Gm-cell-based CMOS image sensor (CIS) achieving deep subelectron noise performance. The CIS presents a new compensation block and low-noise current source to improve the performance of the Gm pixel. Furthermore, an optional first-order IIR filter is implemented to improve the output swing. The conversion gain, full...

In this paper we present a sun position sensor platform with a scalable approach for the 3D integration of the sensor optics. This would facilitate the sun position sensor miniaturization, reduces fabrication cost and mitigates the need for sensor calibration. The sun position sensor platform is implemented in a seven mask BICMOS technology with...

This article presents in-pixel (of a CMOS image sensor (CIS) temperature sensors with improved accuracy in the spatial and the temporal domain. The goal of the temperature sensors is to be used to compensate for dark (current) fixed pattern noise (FPN) during the exposure of the CIS. The temperature sensors are based on substrate parasitic...

This paper presents a CMOS image sensor (CIS) with a zoom ADC, to quantize in-pixel temperature sensors, as well as for faster readout speed of the image pixels while maintaining low quantization noise. The proposed 15 bit zoom ADC has a 4 bit Unit Capacitor Array (UCA) SAR and a 13 bit incremental 2<sup>nd</sup>-order delta-sigma ADC (DSADC)...

This brief proposes a successive approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital converter (ADC) whose readout speed is improved by 33%, through applying a digital error correction (DEC) method, compared to an alternative without using the DEC technique. The proposed addition-only DEC alleviates the ADC's incomplete settling errors, hence...

This brief proposes employing each of the classical 4 transistor (4T) pinned photodiode (PPD) CMOS image sensor (CIS) pixels, for both imaging and temperature measurement, intended for compensating the CISs' dark current, and dark signal non-uniformity (DSNU). The proposed temperature sensors rely on the thermal behavior of MOSFETs working in...

This paper analyzes and compensates for process and temperature dependency among a (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) CMOS image sensor (CIS) array. Both the analysis and compensation are supported with experimental results on the CIS’s dark current, dark signal non-uniformity (DSNU), and conversion gain (CG). To model and to...

This paper presents methodologies for suppressing the spatial and the temporal noise in a CMOS image sensor (CIS). First of all, it demonstrates by using a longer-length column bias transistor, both the fixed pattern noise (FPN) and temporal noise can be suppressed. Meantime, it employs column-level oversampling delta-sigma ADCs to suppress...

This paper presents a temporal noise analysis of charge-domain sampling readout circuits for Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors. In order to address the trade-off between the low input-referred noise and high dynamic range, a Gm-cell-based pixel together with a charge-domain correlated-double sampling (CDS) technique...

Point-of-care systems for the detection of infectious diseases are in great demand especially in developing countries. Lateral flow immunoassays are considered ideal biosensors for point-of-care diagnostics due to their numerous advantages. However, to quantify their results a low power, robust electronic reader is needed. A low power CMOS...

We present a high-performance back-illuminated three-dimensional stacked single-photon avalanche diode (SPAD), which is implemented in 45-nm CMOS technology for the first time. The SPAD is based on a P<sup>+</sup>/Deep N-well junction with a circular shape, for which N-well is intentionally excluded to achieve a wide depletion region, thus...
