  • This paper presents a 0.5 V operated pulse-width modulation (PWM) CMOS imager with threshold-variation canceling (TVC) and programmable current-controlled threshold (PCCT) schemes implemented in 0.18 μm CMOS technology. The proposed TVC scheme efficiently improves the fixed-pattern-noise (FPN) issue caused by process variation in conventional PWM sensors. The limited dynamic range in ultra-low-voltage operated sensor can be extended by 56.5 dB with the proposed PCCT operation. The measurement… CONTINUE READING
