HDR CCD Image Sensor System through Double-A/D Convertors
In this paper we present a CCD image sensor system with high dynamic range. This feature is achieved through double analog-to-digital convertors’(ADC) architecture and field programmable gate arrays(FPGA). By doing so, the system outputs high dynamic range images in real time. The proposed scheme is a low-cost solution in the sense that it can be built on top of any traditional sensor system with minor modifications on the system-level analog-to-digital module. Through the post-layout sensor system we show the experimental images to demonstrate the effectiveness.
