This article will go through the evolution of this technology and explain some of the benefits of it. It will help your decision on how to transition your current CCD design to use a Sony Exmor CMOS sensor.
FRAMOS: From CCD to CMOS Sensors ► CMOS Technology reaches new Heights ✓ Read our latest Article ✓
A personal CMOS tutorial by FRAMOS’ Darren Bessette: I was just as surprised as all of you were when I heard the news that Sony is discontinuing their CCD line of sensors. I have always been a big fan of their CCDs since the first time I saw the ICX205 sensor in 2003. And with the recent introduction of their EXview HAD II technology, I was even more excited and convinced that they were pioneering CCD technology to new levels. As a result of this news, I am seeing a lot more questions on Sony’s CMOS product line and how it can be used to replace some of the Sony CCD sensors that are already in use today.
