Orly Yadid-Pecht, MEMBER SPIE Ben-Gurion University of the Negev Electrical and Computer Engineering Department P.O. Box 653 Beer-Sheva 84105 Israel E-mail: oyp@ee.bgu.ac.il Abstract. The work done to provide image sensors (CCDs and CMOS) with a wide dynamic range is reviewed. The different classes of solutions, which consist of logarithmic sensors, ‘‘clipped’’ sensors, multimode sensors, frequency-based sensors, and sensors with control over integration time are described. The pros and cons of… Expand
