Albert Theuwissen argues monolithic CMOS superior to hybrid imagers

Ahead of the Image Sensors Europe conference in London, set to take place from 13 to 15 March, Albert Theuwissen founder of Harvest Imaging has said that stacked imagers, near infrared imaging, and sensors operating outside of traditional imaging, such as those for time-of-flight detection, will all become more mainstream technology in the near future.

Theuwissen made his comments in an interview with the conference organisers; his presentation is entitled ‘Why hybrid imagers have a hard time beating monolithic CMOS image sensors’.

On the topic of hybrid imagers, Theuwissen said: ‘There are several reasons why I think (am convinced) that monolithic CMOS imagers are superior to hybrid imagers,’ clarifying that this is the case for the visible spectrum up to 1.1µm. He went on to say that monolithic CMOS imagers have lower noise, better dark current, and better signal-to-noise ratio than hybrid imagers.

Theuwissen spoke about the potential for stacked image sensors to give new features in CMOS sensors at the European Machine Vision Forum in Vienna last year.

He will deliver his talk on 15 March at the conference.
