Title (EN) OPTICAL PIXEL AND IMAGE SENSOR
(FR) PIXEL OPTIQUE ET CAPTEUR D'IMAGE
Abstract:
(EN) A photosensitive pixel includes a photosensor, an accumulation portion and a readout portion. The photosensor outputs a signal indicative of the intensity of incident light. The accumulation portion performs gated accumulation of the photosensor output signal over a sequence of time intervals. The gated accumulation timing is controlled by a gating control signal. The readout portion reads out the accumulated output. The photosensor and the accumulation portion are individually resettable in accordance with respective control signals, which are timed in accordance with the sequence of time intervals.
(FR) Un pixel photosensible comprend un photocapteur, une partie d'accumulation et une partie de lecture. Le photocapteur délivre un signal indicatif de l'intensité de la lumière incidente. La partie d'accumulation effectue l'accumulation commandée du signal de sortie de photocapteur sur une séquence d'intervalles de temps. La synchronisation d'accumulation commandée est contrôlée par un signal de contrôle de commande. La partie de lecture extrait la sortie accumulée. Le photocapteur et la partie d'accumulation peuvent être réinitialisés individuellement conformément à des signaux de contrôle respectifs, qui sont synchronisés conformément à la séquence d'intervalles de temps.
