Application of HONSUN’s Fiber Optic Plate & Fiber Optic Taper In CCD/CMOS
1. Application of HONSUN’s products in CCD/CMOS:
1) Fiber optic plate can be directly coulpled with CCD/CMOS to have compact optic design.
2) Fiber optic plate and fiber optic taper can be applied to the new-type fingerprint identification instrument as the imaging element with CCD.
3) Fiber optic plate can be applied as X-ray Scintillator plate coupled with CCD/CMOS in DR dental X-ray imaging solution.
4) The small end of Fiber optic taper can be coupled with CCD/CMOS, which can be applied to the low-light-level camera tube.
5) The large end of FOT is plated with scintillator, and the small end coupled with CCD and applied to the imaging survey of invisible light and high-energy radiation such as x-ray camera, radiation imaging detector etc. FOT is also widely used in the field of medical treatment image technology and molecular biology, such as biological information study of small living animals, γ-ray camera, x-ray tomography, and Positron emission tomography Instrument.
2. What is the difference between CCD and CMOS
Digital cameras have become extremely common as the prices have come down. CMOS sensors are much less expensive to manufacture than CCD sensors.
In a CCD device, the charge is actually transported across the chip and read at one corner of the array. In most CMOS devices, there are several transistors at each pixel that amplify and move the charge using more traditional wires. The CMOS approach is more flexible because each pixel can be read individually.
CCDs use a special manufacturing process to create the ability to transport charge across the chip without distortion. CMOS chips, on the other hand, use traditional manufacturing processes to create the chip.
CCD sensors, as mentioned above, create high-quality, low-noise images. CMOS sensors, traditionally, are more susceptible to noise.
CMOS traditionally consumes little power. Implementing a sensor in CMOS yields a low-power sensor.
CCDs use a process that consumes lots of power. CCDs consume as much as 100 times more power than an equivalent CMOS sensor.
CMOS chips can be fabricated on just about any standard silicon production line, so they tend to be extremely inexpensive compared to CCD sensors.
CCD sensors have been mass produced for a longer period of time, so they are more mature. They tend to have higher quality and more pixels.
Based on these differences, you can see that CCDs tend to be used in cameras that focus on high-quality images with lots of pixels and excellent light sensitivity. CMOS sensors traditionally have lower quality, lower resolution and lower sensitivity. CMOS sensors are just now improving to the point where they reach near parity with CCD devices in some applications. CMOS cameras are usually less expensive and have great battery life.
