Presentation Highlights Sensor Architectural Developmentsto
Bridge the Gap Between Professional and Consumer Applications
PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Forza Silicon (www.forzasilicon.com),
a leader of advanced image sensor and mixed-signal IC designs for
digital camera applications, today announced that its chief technology
officer, Daniel Van Blerkom, will present at Image Sensors (IS) Americas
2014 in San Francisco, California on September 10, 2014 at 12:10 p.m. PT.
Daniel Van Blerkom will present a paper titled “4K Sensors & Beyond:
Bridging the Gap Between Professional and Consumer Applications.”
The paper describes the challenges and opportunities of image sensor
design as the 4K and 8K standards, now dominant in the digital cinema
and prosumer markets, make their way into mass-market applications.
Pushing beyond today’s 4K systems, while meeting the needs of the
consumer market, requires the development of new sensor architectures
that support extreme scalability. The scalable architecture must
optimize noise, power and area, while addressing issues such as supply
rejection, reference voltage distribution, clocking, calibration, offset
correction, and the digital data path for image signal processing.
“The presentation at IS Americas demonstrates once again the expertise
which Forza Silicon continues to provide in the field of high resolution
CMOS image sensors,” said Dr. Daniel Van Blerkom. “The paper examines
our third generation high-resolution signal chain architecture and how
it resolves the challenges of bringing 4K, 8K, and resolutions beyond to
both prosumer and consumer applications.”
