A semiconductor device that converts an optical image into an
The advanced level of silicon micromachining technology has
improved the performance of solid-state image sensors to the point that they can now be used in
camcorders for home VCRs. Further miniaturization and image quality improvement are investigated.
Solid-state image sensors are classified by their method for selecting picture elements; MOS-type
image sensors employ addressing and CCD-type image sensors employ the signal transfer technique.
