An imaging sensor for digital cameras having a distinct layout from conventional sensors that allows more light to be gathered at the pixel level is known as a back-illuminated sensor (BSI) or backside illuminated sensor (BSI).
Backside Illuminated (BSI) CMOS, an improved design, has a concept identical to standard CMOS, but the way the components are organised in these chips is different.
In essence, the line-by-line readout speed is faster and the photosites are further ahead on the die.A BSI sensor also has larger angular response, which gives lens designers more creative freedom, and perhaps faster readout speeds.
Less uniform response is one disadvantage. Industry watchers noticed that a back-illuminated sensor may, in theory, be less expensive than a comparable front-illuminated model.
The Global BSI CMOS image sensor market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Highly Sensitive 20MP BSI CMOS Image Sensor Unveils from Toshiba The highest level resolution available in the industry improves the image quality of digital still cameras.
The 20-megapixel (MP) CMOS image sensor, the TCM5115CL, will be the newest addition to Toshiba Corporation’s sensor lineup for digital still cameras, the company said today.
The TCM5115CL uses backside illumination technology (BSI) to increase sensitivity and image performance while providing the greatest resolution available in the industry for the 1/2.3 inch optical format.With compact digital cameras’ resolutions now ranging from 10- to 16-megapixels, there is a challenge to increase performance and picture quality with smaller pixels.
The TCM5115CL accomplishes this by outperforming Toshiba’s previous generation 16MP sensor (pixel size = 1.34m) by 15% in full well capacity, or the amount of charge a single pixel can retain before saturating.
The TCM5115CL produces high frame rates of 60 frames per second at 1080p and 100 frames per second at 720p, meeting the demands of high quality, quick frame rate image capture and HD video recording allowing smooth, slow motion playback.
The primary offering of Toshiba’s Analogue and Imaging System division is CMOS image sensors. The TCM5115CL’s addition to its lineup of CMOS sensors for digital cameras will grow the market and help the company.
