This paper presents a time delay and integration (TDI) structure for CMOS image sensor (CIS) with adjacent pixel signal transfer (APST). The CCD-like TDI function is achieved in CIS by proposed APST without additional in-pixel device and minimum routing effort. The in-pixel integrated signal is transferred to adjacent pixel and summed up by an off-pixel column-shared unity-gain buffer. A 128×6 pixel array with 6×6μm2 pixel size has been designed and fabricated in TSMC0.18μm 1P6M CIS technology… CONTINUE READING
