CMOS Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor Scott Moody
CMOS Beginnings 1998 CMOS Emerged as alternative image capture technology 2000 Foveon Inc developed X3 technology 2002 First Widespread use of CMOS in high end digital cameras
Foveon Inc Contribution Before X3 developed sensor technology was.35 to.50 micron technology Company’s were trying to develop.25 micron technology Foveon developed a.18 micron technology Smaller diodes mean higher resolution and quality in the same space
Benefits of CMOS CMOS manufacturing process very similar to that of traditional computer processors CCD very specialist and costly to produce CMOS capable of doing multitasking CCD just registers light CMOS very low power consumption CCD high energy process
