OSAKA, Japan -. (BUSINESS WIRE) – 02/06/2016 –

The Panasonic Corporation announced today that through use of an organic photoconductive film (organic photoconductive film (OPF)) * 1 in the CMOS image sensor, a new highly functional global shutter technology could be developed. Thanks to this technology it is possible to * 2 shots of fast moving objects in scenes with up to ten times more brightness in global shutter mode. The OPF CMOS image sensor, the charge storage function and the photoelectric conversion function can be set independently of one another. By using this unique feature of the OPF CMOS image sensor succeeds in this technology, to compensate for the deterioration of the saturation signal in conventional image sensors with global shutter function. The direction of movement can be detected from the detected signal level of the object in an image by the fine adjustment of the closure sensitivity by the respective voltage of the organic photoconductive film (OPF) can be changed, which is not possible in conventional CMOS image sensors.

Diese newly developed highly functional global shutter technology for a fast image scanning of moving objects at, without causing image distortion that occurs with conventional closure operation under very bright conditions. We expect that this technology will applications be used in large scale in motion capture (motion detection) and can be extended to other applications, their implementation is regarded with high saturation difficult to implement without a proper global shutter, or multiple exposures . with different sensitivity

This new technology offers the following advantages:

  1. Next incident angle (60 degrees), high sensitivity, high saturation and high functional circuits thanks to the special operation of OPF in an OPF for photoelectric conversion and the readout circuits operate independently.
  2. a signal with high saturation, the to ten times higher than that of conventional image sensors with a Global -Shutter function is – thanks to the Photoelectric Conversion Controlled global shutter technology

This development is based on the following new technologies

  1. . CMOS image sensor design technology, the photoelectric conversion portion of the OPF and the circuit can be adjusted independently.
  2. the photoelectric conversion Controlled global shutter technology was based on a control of the sensitivity of the organic achieved photoconductive ends the film.
  3. variable sensitivity Multiple exposure Technology that can detect movements and their direction by changing the image capture sensitivity in each frame.

Panasonic holds in terms of this technology 60 Japanese patents and 41 international patents (including pending patents).

Panasonic presented parts of this research at the international conference ISSCC (International Solid State Circuit Conference) in 2016, the San Francisco, California has taken place in the USA from January 31 to February 4, 2016

* 1: We have a developed by FUJIFILM Corporation organic photoconductive film ( . OFP) used
* 2: The saturation signal for each pixel area, compared to conventional based on silicon CMOS image sensors with global shutter function
