High-tech Automotive Camera Technology
High performance vehicles typically bring with them high performance technologies such as back up cameras, lane drift sensors and other in-car products to make driving safer. Optical technologies such as ghosting lenses that are suitable for CMOS imagers and miniature fisheye lenses that offer a field of view of up to 200 degrees can help […]
What’s Better? CMOS or CCD?
The debate continues on which is best; CMOS or CCD sensors. In today’s cameras, CMOS lenses are more typically used as they allow for a more complex imaging effect and for the shooting of 1080p video. Traditionally, CCD sensors had been believed to have captured and produced higher-quality images with less visual distortion. CCD sensors, […]
Pathogen Movement Measured by CMOS Cameras
Technology plays a role is so many aspects of our lives and now researchers are using imaging technology to examine the pathogen that causes “African sleeping sickness” also known as trypanoosmiasis. This epidemic takes the lives of more than 30,000 annually and can also infect and kill entire herds of cattle and buffalo. The medications […]
Which Sensor Technology Is Best For Your Applications: CMOS or CCD?
Cameras are constructed with image sensors embedded within. The sensors are either of the charge coupled device (CCD) or the complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) style. Both of the sensors perform similar tasks – convert photons (light) into electrons (electrical signals). The main difference in these sensor technologies is the basic construction of the sensor […]
New CMOS Smartphone Camera Detects Cosmic Ray
Have you ever wanted to detect the amount of interstellar cosmic radiation hitting the earth? It’s probably not top of mind for most people but a professor of physics from the University of Wisconsin thought that would be cool so he created an app to do just that! Cosmic rays are high-energy subatomic particles that […]
