CMOS sensor R&D is enabled by Imatest
There are no shortcuts in the process of CMOS image sensor configuration. There is only a myriad set of tasks: setting sensor registers; capturing images; conducting tests; and analyzing results – a cycle that is repeated again and again to achieve an ideal configuration. From medical devices to mobile-phone cameras to military targeting systems, CMOS image sensors support a diverse range of imaging applications. Each application carries its own set of challenges and complexities for product development engineers, who must configure the CMOS image sensor to deliver the optimal combination of digital image qualities, often having to trade off one image quality for another.
With the partnership of Imatest LLC and ON Semi comes Imatest IS: Image Sensor Edition, a speedier way of configuring CMOS image sensors. For product development engineers, Imatest IS might well be the answer to the time thief: software technology that frees up time without compromising quality and testing thoroughness. (more…)
