Developments In CMOS Image Sensors Since IS Europe 2019

The world of CMOS image sensors is changing at a pace that we never have seen before.  New applications, new technologies, new features are constantly added to the large portfolio of CMOS devices that are out in the market.  In this way the performance as well as the possibilities of the devices is constantly improved.

During the IS Europe 2019, a workshop was organised around recent developments in the CIS world.  Because of the success of that workshop, a similar workshop will be repeated at IS Europe 2020 : looking back 1 year and reporting about the latest developments that were announced after ISEurope 2019. 

Several subjects will be discussed : small pixels, new colour filters, new ToF image sensors, new stacked devices, global shutter devices, high-dynamic range techniques, etc.  Some topics that are not yet announced at the moment of writing this abstract will be included as well, because one can be sure: further developments of the CIS technology will not stop on a short notice!  Still exiting times are ahead for the imaging engineers and the imaging community.
