B) Equivalent circuits. quickly locate an object with a sensor, a coarse resolution is effective as the postimage processing load is low. This is effective for target tracking, robotics, etc. 29 Readout circuits using a source follower. The inset shows the output voltage Vout dependence on the time in the readout cycle [125]. 1 Source follower The voltage of a PD is read with a source follower (SF). As shown in Fig. 29, a follower transistor MSF is placed in a pixel and a current load Mb is placed in each column.

14 shows the voltage drop of a PD as a function of time. 14 confirms that VPD almost lineally decreases as time increases. Thus, light intensity can be estimated by measuring the voltage drop of the PD at a fixed time, usually at a video rate of 1/30 sec. 2 Potential description The potential description is frequently used for CMOS image sensors and hence it is an important concept. 15 illustrates the concept [111]. 14 Voltage drop of a PD as a function of time. a MOSFET is depicted as an example; the source acts as a PD and the drain is connected to Vdd .

The accumulated charges change the potential depth from Vb to Vq , 32 Smart CMOS Image Sensors and Applications Vdd Gate (a) X PD Y n+ nP-sub. 15 Illustration of potential description. An n-MOSFET structure is shown in (a), where the source is a PD and the drain is biased at Vdd . The gate of the MOSFET is off-state. The conduction band edge profile along X–Y in (a) is shown in (b). The horizontal axis shows the position corresponding to the position in (a) and the vertical axis shows the electron energy.
