—This brief presents a new simultaneous multislope analog–digital converter (ADC) architecture suitable for array implementations in, e.g., CMOS image sensors (CISs). The simplest implementation is almost twice as fast as a conventional-slope ADC, while it requires only a small amount of extra circuitry. Measurements have been performed on a custom made CIS(More)
Today there exist several applications where a real visible scene needs to be sampled to electrical signals, e.g., video cameras, digital still cameras, and machine vision systems. Since the 1970's charge-coupled device (CCD) sensors have primarily been used for this task, but during the last decade CMOS image sensors have become more and more popular. The(More)
