Paper Abstract

The need for miniaturization in advanced science sensor systems has led to the development of a new image sensor technology, the active pixel image sensors (APS). The development of CMOS APS technology allows the integration of timing and control electronics, imaging detector arrays, signal chains and analog-to-digital conversion on a single integrated circuit. The impact on the imaging system is to reduce power by approximately 1000X over existing systems--from tens of watts to tens of milliwatts. This paper will describe the development of this technology and its application to future space science sensor systems.
