Canon Patents a Combination High-Speed, High-Resolution Stacked Sensor
Normally sensor manufacturers have to choose between high speed and high resolution while also managing power consumption. Canon appears to be trying to find a way to balance all three needs with a new sensor patent.
As a sensor increases in speed or in resolution, it requires more power (both how much it draws and how a manufacturer has to manage the delivery). The latest patent application from Canon appears to be an attempt to make a sensor that is high resolution, high speed, and have lower power requirements.
If that sounds ambitious, it’s because it is.
“In recent years, multiple pixels of an imaging element have been advanced, and accordingly, there has been a tendency that a reading time of a pixel signal becomes longer,” the application reads. “Therefore, it is…
