Introduction, The complementary metal oxide semiconductor CMOS sensor also known as the active pixel.
sensor APS is a type of image sensor used in many consumer devices Unlike its technological. competitor the charged coupled device CCD CMOS sensors have most of their required. circuitry and components integrated onto the sensor resulting in a smaller and a less power. consuming system overall This makes CMOS sensors better suited for smaller consumer. electronics such as cell phone cameras and webcams It is also used in some digital cameras and. CMOS sensors have greatly impacted the social lifestyle of the 21st century Camera phones. which use CMOS sensors allow users to take photos and record videos wherever they go and. easily share them with friends and family By integrating the camera with the phone most people. can now carry one less device CMOS sensors have also found their way into the webcams of. notebook computers This affected the way that many business meetings are run Participants can. now meet without physically being in the room This not only saves time but can also be more. convenient for the meeting participants, The purpose of this report is to explain the basic functionality of CMOS sensors The basic. functionality of CCDs will also be explained to point out the differences between the two. technologies The manufacturing process of CMOS sensors will not be explained Technologies. exclusive to specific CMOS sensor models will not be covered either only the general. technologies found in all CMOS sensors will be discussed. The paper begins with an overview of what CMOS sensors are and what they are used for. including a basic timeline The next section explains the functionality of CMOS sensors. including the main parts of CMOS sensors and how the parts work together to make the sensor. and the system functional Some explanation of the functionality of CCDs will also be provided. The next section discusses the differences between CMOS sensors and CCDs in terms of. functionality requirements and real world performance and applications The report concludes. with some drawbacks of introducing the technology into society. CMOS Sensor Functionality, A CMOS sensor is an image sensor that contains most of its functioning parts on a single circuit. It adds image sensing capabilities to devices such as cell phone cameras and scanners and. allows the user to convert a real life scene into a digital image. A typical CMOS is an integrated circuit with an array of pixel sensors Each pixel sensor. contains its own light sensor and active amplifier An analog to digital converter and other. components critical to the operation of the pixel sensors are located on the CMOS sensor. Light comes through the lens and is processed by the color filter before reaching the pixel sensor. array When the filtered light reaches the pixel array each pixel sensor converts the light into an. amplified voltage signal that can be further processed by the rest of the CMOS sensor. The CMOS sensor contains four main parts the color filters the pixel array the digital controller. and the analog to digital convertor Figure 1,CMOS Sensor. ANALOG SIGNAL DIGITAL SIGNAL,LIGHT FROM,Figure 1 Parts of a CMOS sensor Litwiller 2005. Description of Parts and Functions, The following section discusses the main parts of the CMOS sensor.
Color Filter, An array or a mosaic of tiny color filters is placed over the pixel sensor array to capture color. information Each filter in the array corresponds to a pixel sensor in the pixel array and only. allows certain colors of light to pass through to the pixel sensor This is achieved by filtering out. other the wavelengths of unwanted color Color filters are required because the pixel sensors can. only detect light intensity and not wavelength which dictates the color of a light Zumdahl. The individual filters in a color filter array can be designed to permit the transmittance of any. single color but the most effective colors are red green blue cyan magenta and yellow A. combination of different colored filters and their corresponding pixel sensors must be used to. properly determine the color for one pixel of an image The combination is a pattern of color. filters called a sub mosaic which is most commonly made up of a 2 by 2 grid of color filters. The most common type of color filter array is the Bayer filter The sub mosaic pattern of a Bayer. filter is 2x2 with one red one blue and two green filters Two green filters are used for each red. and blue filter to mimic the human s eye greater sensitivity of green light Figure 2 McHugh. Bayer Filter Pixel Sensor Array,2 by 2 RGGB,Sub mosaic. Figure 2 A Bayer filter over the pixel sensor array Wikimedia 2006. Pixel Array, The pixel array consists of millions of active pixel sensors responsible for capturing the intensity. of the pre filtered light passing through Each individual pixel sensor then converts the detected. intensity level into a voltage signal before passing it down to the another part of the chip such as. the analog to digital convertor Figure 3,Pixel Sensor. photons to electrons,conversion Electron charge to.
voltage conversion,inside pixel sensor,Voltage Signal. Figure 3 The pixel sensor array of a CMOS sensor Litwiller 2005. The functionality of a pixel sensor is based on the principle of the photoelectric effect The. photoelectric effect is a phenomenon in which electrons are emitted from matter particularly. metals when energy from an electromagnetic radiation of very short wavelength is absorbed For. image sensors the source of the electromagnetic radiation is light which takes the form of a. wave of particles called photons The intensity of a light is proportional to the amount of photons. associated with it Similarly the amount of electrons emitted by the metal pixel sensor is relative. to the amount of photons striking the pixel sensor Fowler 1997. The resulting charge of the electrons emitted is converted into a voltage signal by the pixel. sensor The voltage signals from the pixel sensors in the pixel array are then combined and. outputted as a single signal,Digital Control, The digital controller is the set of circuitry integrated on the CMOS sensor that controls the pixel. array It consists of multiple components including the clock timing generator and oscillator to. ensure that every pixel in the array is in sync with each other It is responsible for telling the. pixel array to when to start capturing light Any other circuitry that is required for the array of. pixels to function orderly as a whole is included in the digital controller. Analog to Digital Converter ADC, The ADC takes the analog voltage signals from the pixel sensor array and converts them into a. digital signal The final digital signal is then outputted to an image processor or another device. independent of the CMOS sensor which converts or further processes the digital signal into. something viewable by the end user,Theory of Operation. When the pixel array receives the signal from the digital controller the pixel sensors captures the. intensity levels of the wavelength filtered light and outputs the result as an analog voltage signal. The analog signal is converted into digital by the ADC so that the final signal leaving the CMOS. sensor can be used and further processes by other digital components on the printed circuit board. of the device,CCD Functionality, A CCD is an image sensor that is consists of an array of photoelectric devices or pixel sensors It.
adds image sensing capabilities to devices such as cameras and allows the user to convert a real. life scene into a digital image, A typical CCD is an array of pixel sensors with extra circuitry to output the captured data as an. analog voltage signal, Light comes through the lens and is processed by the color filter before reaching the pixel sensor. array When the filtered light reaches the pixel array it captures the light intensity data which is. converted into an analog voltage signal that can be further processed by other chips on an. external circuit board, The CCD contains two main parts the color filter and the pixel array Figure 4. ANALOG SIGNAL,LIGHT FROM,INPUT FROM CIRCUIT BOARD, Figure 4 Parts of a Charged Coupled Device Litwiller 2005. Description of Parts and their Functions, The following section discusses the main parts of the CMOS sensor.
Color Filter, The color filter of a charged coupled device functions in the same way as the color filter in a. CMOS sensor For more information refer to Color Filter under the section CMOS Sensor. Functionality on page 4 of this report,Pixel Array. The pixel array consists of millions of passive pixel sensors responsible for capturing the. intensity of the light passing through The light intensity data is then combined before being. converted into an analog voltage signal which is outputted to an external circuit board to be. further processed Figure 5,Pixel Sensor,photons to electrons. conversion,Electron charge to,voltage conversion,Voltage Signal. Figure 5 The pixel sensor array of a CCD Litwiller 2005. The functionality of a pixel sensor is based on the principle of the photoelectric effect The. photoelectric effect is a phenomenon in which electrons are emitted from matter particularly. metals when energy from an electromagnetic radiation of very short wavelength is absorbed For. image sensors the source of the electromagnetic radiation is light which takes the form of a. wave of particles called photons The intensity of a light is proportion to the amount of photons. associated with it Similarly the amount of electrons emitted by the metal pixel sensor is relative. to the amount of photons striking the pixel sensor Fowler 1997. The resulting charge of the electrons emitted is converted into a voltage signal by the pixel. sensor The voltage signals from the pixel sensors in the pixel array are then combined and. outputted as a single signal,Theory of Operation, When the pixel array receives the signal from an external component on the printed circuit board.
the pixel sensors captures the intensity levels of the wavelength filtered light and outputs the. result as an analog voltage signal The analog signal is outputted to the printed circuit board to be. converted to a digital signal and further processed. CMOS vs CCD, CMOS sensors and charged coupled devices are both widely used for capturing images digitally. Each technology has its unique strengths and weaknesses giving them advantages in different. applications,Technical Comparison, The technical differences between CMOS sensor and CCDs include the on chip functions the. type of output signal and the pixel sensor array Figure 6. Pixel Sensor,photons to electrons,conversion,Electron charge to. voltage conversion,Voltage Signal, Figure 6 The pixel array of a CMOS sensor and a CCD Litwiller 2005. Pixel Sensor Array Comparison, The pixel sensor arrays in both image sensors function by converting the light photons into an.
electric charge and processing it into useful electronic signals The main differences are where. the photon to electric charge conversion takes place on the pixel array. Both types of pixel sensor arrays convert the photons striking the pixel sensor into electrons an. electrical charge using the photoelectric effect In a CMOS sensor each pixel sensor also. converts the electrons into a voltage signal In a CCD the electrical charge of each pixel sensor. is transferred to an output node to be converted into a voltage signal Litwiller 2001. Other Differences, In addition to the pixel sensor array a CMOS sensor also includes other circuitries such as a. digital controller and an analog to digital convertor on the chip itself Other functions include a. built in amplifier and noise corrector which may or may not be included in a CMOS sensor The. analog to digital convertor allows a CMOS sensor to output digital signals. A CCD on the other hand outputs an analog voltage signal and utilizes other chips located on an. external circuit board to convert the signal to digital and apply noise correction etc. Table I summarizes the technical differences between CMOS sensors and CCDs. Table I Feature Comparison DALSA 2010,Feature CMOS CCD. Signal out of pixel Voltage Electrical Charge,Signal out of chip Bits digital Voltage analog. Signal out of system Bits digital Bit digital,System noise Moderate Low. Chip complexity High Low,System complexity Low High.
System components Sensor lens few Sensor lens,additional support multiple support. chips chips,Analysis from a Technical Viewpoint, The added functions to the CMOS sensor reduce the amount of off chip circuitry required for. operation but they clutter the chip and reduce the area available for capturing light In addition. with each pixel sensor performing its own electron to voltage conversion the uniformity across. the whole array will be lower, All of the CCD s area can be used for capturing light because it has no extra circuitry that take. up space on the chip The uniformity of the output is also relatively high compared to CMOS. sensors However due to the lack of extra functions CCDs require extra off chip circuitry to. operate properly DALSA 2010,Practical Comparison, The technical differences between CMOS sensors and CCDs affect the way each technology is. used in the real world The following sections will discuss such effects and how the technical. aspects are involved,Image Quality, Typical CMOS sensors have a lower uniformity than CCDs due to the design of its pixel sensor.
array The result is that the images captured by a CMOS sensor will generally have more noise. than a similar image captured by a CCD, CCDs have generally been the preferred choice in the photographic scientific and industrial. applications that demand the highest image quality in terms of noise and quantum efficiency. although both CCDs and CMOS sensors can offer excellent imaging performance when designed. properly DALSA 2010, The manufacturing costs of both technologies are similar at the chip level CMOS sensors were. speculated to have much lower manufacturing costs than CCDs because CMOS sensors were. manufactured using the same technologies as existing mainstream logic chips or memory chips. which was called the CMOS process hence CMOS sensors. However the manufacturing process had to be revised because CMOS sensors need to be. manufactured at higher qualities then traditional chips in order to achieve good imaging. capabilities reducing the cost advantages that CMOS sensors had over CCDs In addition the. manufacturing process for CCDs is more mature than the revised CMOS manufacturing process. making the CCDs generally less expensive to manufacture. CMOS sensors can still be produced in higher volumes due to the use of a larger silicon wafer. 200mm for CMOS versus 150mm for CCDs DALSA 2010 Overall this balanced out the. total manufacturing costs for both technologies and their manufacturing costs turned to be very. comparable to each other, Development costs which are separate from manufacturing costs are higher for CMOS sensors. because they are more complicated to design CCDs are relatively simple and easier to design. Applications, The main advantages that CMOS sensors have over CCDs are the allowance for a smaller system. and lower power draw Therefore CMOS sensors are dominant in camera phones It is also the. favored technology for other small low power devices. The advantages of a CDD are its higher imaging quality so it is found in most high performance. professional and industrial cameras, However exceptions are being introduced as both CMOS sensor and CCD technologies are.
improving CCDs are used in some low power cellphone cameras while CMOS sensors are used. in some high performance industrial cameras For other applications there is no clear line to. segregate the two technologies,Speculations of CMOS Sensor Technology. One of the goals for CMOS sensor producers is to reduce the disadvantages that the CMOS. sensor has against CCDs This includes image quality shortcomings such as low uniformity and. noisy images and development issues such as the comparatively high cost to engineer a sensor. However just like any other technologies CCDs will also continue to improve and make up for. its shortcomings against CMOS sensors As a resulted it is speculated that CMOS sensors will. not replace CCDs but will exist in parallel as an alternative technology. Applications for CMOS sensor will also expand in the future Right now cell phones are the. biggest application for CMOS sensors in terms of unit volume but CMOS sensors are beginning. to find their way into new applications For example the usage of CMOS sensors is increasing in. the automotive industry specifically for safety systems Security industries are also gaining. interest in sensors with on board intelligence Litwiller 2005. Conclusion, The CMOS sensor allows images to be captured digitally and functions based on the principle of. the photoelectric effect CCDs are another type of digital image capture technology that is also. based on the photoelectric effect Other than that both technologies operate differently and have. different characteristics, The main difference is CMOS sensors have most of their required circuitry and components. integrated onto the sensor resulting in a smaller less energy consuming system than CCD based. systems This makes CMOS sensors better suited for smaller consumer electronics such as cell. phone cameras and webcams It is also used in some digital cameras and scanners CCDs yield. better image results overall and have lower development costs although manufacturing costs. are comparable between the two, In the future both technologies will continue to improve and their differences in characteristics. will ensure that nether technologies will replace one another.
