Paper Abstract

This integrated optical motion detection microsystem combines an analog programmable interpolator, digital drivers, differential analog front-end, signal monitoring outputs and contains an array of light sensitive cells with microstripe raster. Interpolating values are generated from orthogonal sinusoidal signals coming from illuminated integrated photosensors. Optical microsystem composes autocalibration on analog front-end to get proper interpolating signals. It consists of three symmetrical analog channels: sin, cosine and reference signal channel. Each channel combines a current gain stage operating as a fully differential current to voltage converter and thus guarantees the best phase relating between ordinary and inverted analog signals. Integrated analog buffers are used for outputting processed analog signals for monitoring purpose. The signal bandwidth of analog channels is designed to be large enough not to limit the system response and therefore maximize the useful signal range.
