Tutorial article published on column ramp AD converters for image sensors

Together with Albert Theuwissen of TU Delft and Harvest Imaging, I wrote a tutorial article on column ramp AD converters. Starting from the basic architecture of ramp converters, the article dives deeper into circuit aspects such as the comparator design, the benefits of counters over latches and the limitations of the architecture . The article …

On Mars!

Nice to see that first image – captured by the CMV20000 image sensor inside the rover’s engineering cameras. I can’t wait to see the full resolution pictures. A great milestone for the entire team that developed this chip back at CMOSIS. Who could have thought at that time that this imager would ever end up on …

Cool Solar Orbiter EUI and PHI images

We developed the extreme-uv sensitive backside thinned CMOS imagers for the EUI instrument at CMOSIS in collaboration with ROB (Brussels) and CSL (Liege). That was a truly Belgian project, rare to see that happen in our kingdom today. Great to see the detectors in full action now, delivering stunning images. Also the PHI instrument, for …
