Title: Ultra Low Power Imaging Systems Using CMOS Image Sensor Technology
Authors: Fossum, E.
Issue Date: 29-Jul-1994
Citation: San Diego, California, USA
Abstract: The need for miniaturization in advanced science sensor systems has led to the development of a new image sensor technology, the active pixel image sensor (APS). The development of CMOS APS technology allows the integration of timing and control electronics, imaging detector arrays, signal chains and analog-to-digital conversion on a single integrated circuit. The impact on the imaging system is to reduce power by approximately 1000x over existing systems - from tens of watts to tens of milliwatts.
