image sensors have shown explosive growth in technology and economic scale. In every machine vision equipment of automation application, image sensor has become a new solution. While investing to increase sales, manufacturers also face market uncertainty and manufacturing technology limitations. New electronic equipment processes, software applications, and application fields will drive the growth of image sensors in the future
the latest research from frost Sullivan in the United States - "image sensor progress" analysis found that image sensor technology will be applied to digital cameras with image needs, medical imaging equipment, automatic navigation, driver assistance, and industrial machine vision. The development of manufacturing, hardware and software will improve the performance of image sensors and open up new application fields
frost Sullivan's analysts said, "the popularity and demand growth of electronic products and equipment combined with digital camera technology will promote the innovation of image sensors. The expansion of the application scope of image sensors and the enhancement of flexibility and performance have made digital imaging technology replace the old film based imaging technology in most application fields."
at present, the innovation of image sensor is mainly to enhance the sensitivity while shortening the exposure time, and make it smaller and smaller by using pixels. The final result is that the image sensor can image with only a small amount of light. In terms of spectrum, manufacturers are also advancing the development of larger laser sensors for more optical ranges
however, in order to ensure the primacy of image sensors, it is necessary to understand all the limitations of manufacturing. Image sensor manufacturers need to look for differences with other competitors through hardware and software
the analysts of the research institute also said that "in addition to the consumer market, image sensor technology needs to meet the high-performance imaging requirements of medical, industrial and aerospace in the future. On the whole, the application of image sensors will continue to be based on the improvement of performance compared with traditional technologies, especially the reduction of impact strength and cost." While manufacturers continue to improve product performance, flexibility and system integration capabilities, they also need to constantly drive the gear to drive the compression shaft to rotate at the same time to reduce costs, but the use method. The expansion of the application scope of image sensors will promote the development of new technologies, enhance the performance of products, and show the difference between manufacturers and other competitors
