Title: SOLID-STATE IMAGE CAPTURING DEVICE AND ELECTRONIC INSTRUMENT
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to a solid-state image capturing device and an electronic instrument which enable a reduction in power consumption. In AD converters provided for each unit pixel or for each shared pixel unit, a pixel signal and a reference signal which changes over time are compared, magnitude relationships between pixel signals from a pixel of interest and from neighboring pixels located in the vicinity of the pixel of interest are compared by means of the reference signal, and a result of the comparison of the magnitude relationships is stored in a data storage unit. This disclosure is applicable, for example, to backside illumination type solid-state image capturing devices.
