CMOS sensors are coming at age (en)
CMOS sensors are coming of age and many of their shortcomings belong to the past. Today many CMOS sensors have global shutter and offer sensitivity that even surpasses CCD performance. High resolution combined with flexible read out modes is a natural ingredient and not least, the sensors can operate at high speed. For camera manufac turers like JAI, CMOS sensor technology has led to design of complete new camera families making new applications possible.
