Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present an overview of high-performance CMOS image sensor products developed at BAE SYSTEMS Imaging Solutions designed to satisfy the increasingly challenging technical requirements for image sensors used in advanced scientific, industrial, and low light imaging applications. We discuss the design and present the test results of a family of image sensors tailored for high imaging performance and capable of delivering sub-electron readout noise, high dynamic range, low power, high frame rates, and high sensitivity. We briefly review the performance of the CIS2051, a 5.5-Mpixel image sensor, which represents our first commercial CMOS image sensor product that demonstrates the potential of our technology, then we present the performance characteristics of the CIS1021, a full HD format CMOS image sensor capable of delivering sub-electron read noise performance at 50 fps frame rate at full HD resolution. We also review the performance of the CIS1042, a 4-Mpixel image sensor which offers better than 70% QE @ 600nm combined with better than 91dB intra scene dynamic range and about 1 e- read noise at 100 fps frame rate at full resolution.
