Title (EN) IMAGING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'IMAGERIE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An imaging device comprising an array of pixels fabricated using a microelectronic technology such as CMOS is disclosed. The imaging device provides information regarding rapid increases in incident radiation. The sensor is sensitive to a variable quantity to be imaged, such as visible or non-visible radiation, and a signal representative of the quantity is output. The quantity is measured over a monitoring period, and the timing of the incidence may also be output.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif d'imagerie comprenant un réseau de pixels réalisés par micro-électronique telle que la technologie CMOS. Ce dispositif d'imagerie fournit une information relative à des augmentations rapides de rayonnement incident. Le capteur est sensible à une quantité variable à représenter, telle qu'un rayonnement visible ou invisible, un signal représentant cette quantité étant émis. Ladite quantité est mesurée pendant une période de surveillance, la durée d'incidence pouvant également être produite.
