Image Sensor Terminology Technical Note Thumbnail

Technical Paper

Image Sensor Terminology

This technical note has been written to clarify some of the terminology used to describe the operation and performance of solid state image sensors. It is intended for use by anyone considering using these sensors in a systems design, and particularly for first time users. This note provides only brief explanations of the common terms encountered in image sensor specifications.

Image Sensor Color Correction Technical Note Thumbnail

Technical Paper

Image Sensor Color Correction

This reference document will describe the basic process to obtain colors from a digital image sensor. CCD and CMOS solid-state image sensors contain an array of photosensitive elements called pixels. The pixels collect light from a scene and convert it into electrical signal. The signal is then digitized and processed. Digital cameras use CCD or CMOS image sensors to capture images.
