Forza Silicon Announces High Dynamic Range CMOS Sensor Development

Fabless Semiconductor Company is in Joint Development with Leading Image Sensor Foundry

(PRWEB) June 22, 2010 -- Forza Silicon Corporation announced today that it is in a joint development effort with a leading image sensor foundry to bring to market the next generation of high dynamic range CMOS image sensors.

Forza Silicon Corporation Chief Technology Officer, Daniel Van Blerkom, PhD, and his associates recently released an article evaluating the pros and cons of various high dynamic range approaches for CMOS image sensors. The article appeared in the June 1, 2010 edition of Laser Focus World:

“These techniques all require extensive modifications to the traditional pixel design that can lead to degradations in sensitivity and dark-current performance. Modulating the integration time instead of the conversion gain can reduce the pixel modifications required” said Dr. Van Blerkom.“The next generation of HDR image sensors will require customization and optimization of the pixel, analog signal chain, and the image processing algorithms. We are happy to announce our co-operation with our foundry partner to develop this sensor IP.”

Forza demonstrated an image-aware tone-mapped image set in its labs in Pasadena, California, which represents a close approximation of how a natural scene looks to the human eye.
