Optimization of Interface Circuits of CMOS Imaging Systems
The research will focus on optimizing the performances of CMOS imaging systems by means of designing high-performance interface circuits. These performances are expressed in terms of frame rate, dynamic range and spatial resolution, and should be maximized. However, the main bottleneck in designing these interface circuits lies in the trade-off between previously discussed performance metrics. Optimizing these performance metrics becomes more important during the years due to the increased demand and applications of CMOS image sensors (e.g. high-end cameras, mobile phone/tablet cameras, security, machine vision, 3D-imaging for autonomous cars and drones, etc.).
