Abstract
(EN)
An imaging device (10) according to the present disclosure comprises multiple pixels (110), a selection unit (18), and an A/D conversion unit (13). On the basis of a control signal, the multiple pixels (110) perform photoelectric conversion and output a pixel signal. The selection unit (18) selects either the pixel signal or the control signal. The A/D conversion unit (13): performs A/D conversion on the pixel signal if the selection unit (18) selects the pixel signal; and detects the control signal if the selection unit (18) selects the control signal.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un dispositif d'imagerie (10) qui comprend de multiples pixels (110), une unité de sélection (18) et une unité de conversion A/N (13). Sur la base d'un signal de commande, les multiples pixels (110) réalisent une conversion photoélectrique et délivrent en sortie un signal de pixel. L'unité de sélection (18) sélectionne soit le signal de pixel soit le signal de commande. L'unité de conversion A/N (13) : effectue une conversion A/N sur le signal de pixel si l'unité de sélection (18) sélectionne le signal de pixel ; et détecte le signal de commande si l'unité de sélection (18) sélectionne le signal de commande.
(JA)
本開示に係る撮像装置(10)は、複数の画素(110)と、選択部(18)と、AD変換部(13)と、を備える。複数の画素(110)は、制御信号に基づき、光電変換を行って画素信号を出力する。選択部(18)は、画素信号または制御信号の一方を選択する。AD変換部(13)は、選択部(18)が画素信号を選択した場合に、画素信号に対するAD変換を実行し、選択部(18)が制御信号を選択した場合に制御信号を検出する。
