Paper Abstract

It costs a few million dollars to develop an innovative solid- state image sensor. Various image sensors with special useful functions have been proposed for individual scientific and engineering research purposes. However, the enormous cost hampers their development. Presented in this paper is an attempt to classify wide-range of requirements for high-speed image sensors for scientific and engineering use, and to combine them into a limited number of specific designs. This will serve to provide a rational overall development strategy and to reduce overlapping effort and cost for their development, and hopefully contribute to realization of some of the designs. This is a state-of-the-art paper on development of high-speed video cameras, including: (1) classification of advanced image capturing technologies required for scientific and engineering researches; (2) performance criteria for high-speed image capturing; (3) classification and comparison of currently available high- speed image capturing technologies; (4) user's requirements for electronic high-speed imagers, obtained by questionnaires and hearings; (5) comparison of PRIS (parallel readout image sensors) and ISIS (in-situ storage image sensors); (6) current status of fabrication technology of both CCD- and CMOS-image sensors, and (7) recommendation of prototype high-speed image sensors for urgent development.
