While capturing a still image or a video clip on a bright, sunny day can be straightforward, the situation becomes much more complicated when lighting is uncontrolled. A street at night, an underground garage, a dark corner with little illumination – these are the type of situations where a standard image sensor may not be sufficient.
Fortunately, several different technologies are available which can enhance an image sensor’s ability to successfully capture an image under these types of challenging lighting.
Specialized color filter arrays increase the amount of visible light available for capture, or enable capture of near-infrared light.
Pixel designs can be modified to maximize the amount of light that can be captured by the image sensor, and advanced electron multiplication technology can enable detection under sub-lux illumination.
In this webinar you will learn the advantages of these techniques and how ON Semiconductor has implemented these technologies in a portfolio of image sensors designed for use in challenging lighting conditions.
