Complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors for use in space

J. Bogaerts,    CMOSIS, Belgium

Abstract:

This chapter discusses the use of complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) sensors for operation in space. It first introduces specific requirements for sensor use in space, then compares the benefits and drawbacks of CMOS sensors and CCDs in terms of typical sensor requirements. Finally, a number of developments in CMOS sensors for space applications are described in more detail.
