Abstract—The first integrated multi-aperture image sensor is reported. It comprises a 166×76 array of 16×16, 0.7μm pixel, FT-CCD subarrays with local readout circuit, per-column 10-bit ADCs, and control circuits. The image sensor is fabricated in a 0.11μm CMOS process modified for buried channel charge transfer. Global snap shot image acquisition with CDS(More)
Conventional image sensors have improved with technology scaling mainly by reducing pixel size to increase spatial resolution [1,2]. As resolution approaches the limits of existing optics, is there much to gain from further pixel scaling? In [3], we argue that further scaling can provide new imaging capabilities via a multi-aperture (MA) architecture, which(More)
An image sensor comprising an array of apertures each with its own local integrated optics and pixel array is presented. A lens focuses the image above the sensor creating overlapping fields of view between apertures. Multiple perspectives of the image in the focal plane facilitate the synthesis of a 3D image at a higher spatial resolution than the aperture(More)
The first image sensor with submicron pixel pitch is reported. Test structures comprising 16× 16 pixel Full-Frame-Transfer (FFT) CCDs with 0.5μm pixels are fabricated in a single-poly 110nm CMOS process. Characterization results demonstrate charge transfer efficiency of 99.9%, QE of 48% at 550nm, conversion gain of 193μV/e-, well capacity of 3550e-, dark(More)
A prototype of a new high dynamic range readout scheme targeted for 3D-IC IR focal plane arrays is described. Dynamic range is extended using synchronous self-reset while high SNR is maintained using few non-uniformly spaced captures and least-squares fit to estimate pixel photocurrent. The prototype comprises of a 16×5 readout pixel array fabricated in a(More)

2119 Background: Docetaxel is a taxane with a broad range of clinical activity. Erlotonib is an oral tyrosine kinase inhibitor of the epidermal growth factor receptor (HER1/EGFR). This study aims to define the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of both drugs when docetaxel is given weekly. METHODS 14 evaluable patients (pts) with only one prior therapy for(More)
