A diversity of image sensor options are available for your consideration, differentiated both in terms of their fundamental semiconductor process foundations and of their circuit (and filter, microlens and other supplement) implementations. Understanding their respective strengths and shortcomings is critical to making an appropriate product selection for your next embedded vision system design.
The image sensor is a critical part of an embedded vision system, since it's at this initial stage of the hardware design that light photons transform into digital 1s and 0s for subsequent processing and analysis. It's not the first stage, mind you; ambient light (in some cases augmented by an...
