CMOS Imager Provides CCD Image Quality

A 1.3-Mpixel CMOS image sensor from Micron Technology gives users a progressive scan image that can meet the quality requirements of digital still and digital video cameras. The MI-1300 takes advantage of the company's expertise in low-leakage DRAM manufacturing to achieve CCD-level image quality while benefitting from the lower CMOS manufacturing costs. The image sensor delivers 30 frames/s and has a dark current of just 20 electrons/s. The sensor can maintain a low temporal noise of less than 10 electrons for capturing images at low light levels.
