Drivers - Assembly Line Factory Automation Market

Rising demand for image sensors from automotive industry:

In automotive industry image sensors are used in cameras for increasing vehicle safety, driving assistance, driving comfort, enhanced blind spot detection and others. Smart cameras are deployed in various automated functions in the automotive industries. Image camera consist of integrated Circuits with high dynamic range, high sensitivity with spectrum driving to its wide use in automotive industries. The increasing demand for autonomous vehicles has fueled the market.

Image Sensitivity and Reliability of Product Performance:

Image sensors external conditions include intensity of ambient light, advanced COMS have the capacity to provide better quality driving to a great use in various industries. Along with the transformation to sensor diagrams the new CMOS image sensor technology enables smaller pixels without effecting the image quality. It enhances the light sensitivity by a factor of two to four times cameras shutter speed is increased eliminating the heating problem

Challenges - 3D Mobile Mapping Market

Sensor Packaging:

Most of the image sensor designers have expertise in analog and mixed-mode of chip design, with optical issues in pixel and array scale. Those manufacturer depend upon vendors of optical post processing services to recommend material and specifications.

Also, designers must optimize the optical back and micro lens array even the objective lens used by the end-product designer.

Image sensors manufactures should focus to carefully match the color filter array with silicon spectral response, along with an infrared cut filter to ensure a natural white balance (RGB) under daylight conditions.

Image sensor also faces packaging issue; manufactures should pay attention to heat dissipation because noise is a strong function of die temperature, and proper ground planes and shielding are necessary to prevent system noise from corrupting low-level analog signals.

Challenges Associated with CCD for Image Sensing Lead:

CMOS and CCD image sensors work on same principle, image sensors can record the amount of light entering with a specific pixel, while the image is captured. This information is converted into a digital format. But CCD based image sensor faces more performance challenges, as compared to CMOS image sensor. There used to be a significant image quality issue with CMOS image sensor. However this is changing.

CCD image sensors delivered improved quality, while CMOS image sensors have provided better performance related to battery performance and lower cost of operation, as a result, CMOS image sensor have been shipping at high volume. But traditional boundaries are distorting, where CMOS image sensor are increasingly rivaling the image quality, that CCD have traditionally offering.
