CMOS/CCD SENSORS AND CAMERA SYSTEMS, second edition
by Gerald C. Holst
and Terrence S. Lomheim

This second edition has been completely updated. CMOS/CCD differences, similarities, and applications are described in detail. It provides CMOS and CCD array architecture concepts and operation, (full-frame, interline transfer, progressive scan, color filter arrays, rolling shutters, 3T, 4T, 5T, and 6T). Novel designs include EMCCD, EBCCD, Super CCD, and intensified CCDs.

The largest market today is the cell phone (mobile phone), with camcorders and digital cameras close behind. The goal is to make these cameras small, low-powered, and inexpensive. The high-volume manufacturers consider technological advances as company proprietary information. Hence, the published literature tends to cover only scientific array technology. Nevertheless, there is sufficient information in this book to make an intelligent choice when buying these products.

In the early 1990s, some thought that CMOS detectors would replace CCDs, This did not (nor will it) happen. Each has it advantages and disadvantages. CMOS manufacturing capability can produce smaller-sized detectors with 1 Ám square detectors as a goal. These smaller detectors impact performance. The signal-to-noise ratio is relatively low and the dynamic range is small. While even smaller detectors may be possible, the optical blur diameter will ultimately limit spatial resolution. The advantages and limitations of small pixels are described in detail.
