The development of a new rotating gamma camera SPECT device for imaging the brain was undertaken with the objective of achieving the highest full volume imaging spatial and temporal resolution performance. For this purpose, four rectangular gamma camera detectors were arranged as close to the head as possible, and united in a block to insure detector head… (More)
This paper proposes and demonstrates novel types of vision chips that utilize pulse trains for image processing. Two types of chips were designed using 1.2 µm double-metal double-poly CMOS process; one is based on a pulse width modulation (PWM) and the other is based on a pulse frequency modulation (PFM). In both chips the interaction between the pixels… (More)
This paper describes a retinal prosthetic device using a pulse frequency modulation (PFM) based photosensor with a standard CMOS technology and its modification to stimulate retinal cells effectively. A 32x32-pixel PFM photosensor array chip have been fabricated using 0.6 μm CMOS technology and demonstrated the improved functions.
