Digital imaging circuits and technology

ECE493 T16 / ECE730 T22
Offered Spring 2016

This course covers the design and fabrication of digital imaging circuits and devices used in imaging applications. The course provides an understanding of the scientific principles, physics and engineering technology that provide the basis by which images are acquired in digital imaging. The integrated solid-state image sensor technology to be discussed in the course appears in a wide variety of applications ranging from complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) digital cameras used in smartphones to large area active matrix flat panel x-ray imagers. Past undergraduate and graduate students who have attended this course have gone onto to careers developing digital cameras and associated electronics at companies including Apple, Blackberry, Aptina, Micron, Omnivision, Illumina, Perkin Elmer, Qualcomm and Intel.
