Title: SOLID-STATE IMAGING ELEMENT, IMAGING DEVICE AND CONTROL METHOD FOR SOLID-STATE IMAGING ELEMENT
Abstract:
The present invention allows a high-quality image to be captured in a solid-state imaging element that detects an address event. This solid-state imaging element is provided with a pixel array unit in which a plurality of pixels including a specific pixel are arranged in a two-dimensional lattice shape. The specific pixel is provided with a pixel circuit and two analog-digital converters. The pixel circuit outputs two analog signals corresponding to the quantity of an electric charge generated by photoelectric conversion. The two analog-digital converters respectively convert the two analog signals into digital signals using mutually different resolutions.
