Multi Functional CMOS Image Sensor For Flexible Capturing

In these days, 3-D image and 3-D display technique have been developed dramatically and acquiring 3-D information become more and more important than ever before.

Then, we study about multi-functional 3-D imager sensor to capture real-time 3-D information in various circumstances. Each imager core has functionalities of 2-D imaging and 3-D capture using the light section method with combinations of the dual imager core. We achieves, 2-D imaging mode, 3-D capture mode with the conventional light-section method, high-speed 3-D capture mode with the stereo matching mode, and 2-D and 3-D simultaneous capture mode. At now, we continue the research to develop more flexible 3-D image sensor.
