Based on a newly published advance program for the conference, the Image Sensors World article highlights some of the image sensor designs to be described during a session chaired by Shoji Kawahito of Japan's Shizuoka University, and JungChak Ahn of Korea's Samsung Electronics. The sensors that will be discussed include designs from Panasonic,Samsung, and Sony Semiconductor.
Panasonic's sensor is described as a 2.2/3-inch type CMOS image sensor which has a 4,000 x 2,000 pixel resolution, and aims to increase sensitivity by reading out green pixels only once every four frames, while red and blue pixels are read out on every frame and binned in groups of four pixels. Samsung will discuss two different sensors - an eight megapixel 1/3.2-inch type CMOS imager with a sampling technique aimed at reducing dark temporal noise, and a 2.1 megapixel CMOS image sensor of unspecified size capable of 120 frames-per-second readout. From Sony, a 1/2.3-inch type back-illuminated CMOS sensor design offers 50 frames-per-second readout and 10.3 megapixel resolution.
