The Gigavision Camera: A 2Mpixel Image Sensor with 0.56um2 1-T Digital Pixels
We present a CMOS image sensor with deep-subwavelength, digital 1-T pixels designed for use in a digital film concept known as Gigavision (GV) camera. In GV, the levels of gray in the picture are derived from the concentration of activated pixels. Activated pixels are pixels hit by one or more photons. The advantage of this approach is a predictable, highly uniform logarithmic response, thus enabling high dynamic range images. Applications include automotive and environmental monitoring, HDR vision, etc.
