CMOS Image Sensor

Forza’s blend of core expertise culminates in a cutting-edge Visible CMOS image sensor (CIS) design. We combine our quality analog IP building blocks with state-of-the-art analog to digital converters (ADCs) and intimate knowledge of image sensing to design high-quality image sensors that differentiate our customer’s products and give them a competitive advantage from off-the-shelf solutions.

  • Highly-integrated mixed-signal technology to create camera-systems-on-chip (Camera-SoC)
  • Ultra-high-resolution image sensor design (208 megapixel)
  • Low-cost, small-format image sensors (1/7 in. form)
  • High-speed (3000 fps), low power (50 mW)
  • Design, integrate, and characterize CMOS image sensors, cameras-on-chip, and CMOS image sensor IP
  • Ultra-small pixels with proprietary small-pitch-column ADCs
  • Pixel array formats ranging from VGA to 35 mm
  • Pixel technology:  3T, 4T, 4T Shared, 5T; rolling, global frame shutter
  • CIS technology:  sample and hold, column-parallel, correlated double sampling (CDS), programmable-gain amplifier (PGA), gain blocks and level shifters
  • Design of stitched and wafer-scale CMOS image sensors
  • Design for manufacturability (DFM) and built-in self test (BIST)
