  • Advantages and disadvantages of ccd and cmos

    At present, in the field of night vision, CCD interlaced scanning is used for imaging. CMOS is high-definition progressive scanning, so the imaging effect of CMOS is better than that of CCD. At present, CMOS has basically replaced CCD in the field of night vision.

    CCD and CMOS sensors are two commonly used image sensors at present. Both use photodiodes for photoelectric conversion to convert images into digital data. The main difference is the way in which digital data is transmitted. Generally speaking, the image quality of CCD chips used in ordinary digital cameras is better.


    Advantages and disadvantages of CCD: low power consumption, low working voltage; shock and vibration resistance, stable performance, long life; high sensitivity, low noise, large dynamic range; fast response speed, self-scanning function, small image distortion, no residual image; application VLSI process technology production, high pixel integration, accurate size, low cost of commercial production.

    CMOS Advantages and Disadvantages: The sensitivity, noise and dark current performance of the sensor is much lower than that of CCD sensors. CMOS sensors do not require complex external clock driver electronics to generate precise voltages and waveforms to move charge around the sensor. They do not require complex external readout electronics, dual correlation samplers and A/D converters.



    All electronics required for readout are built into the sensor. A single chip only needs a clean power supply to provide a good image and can be read out directly digitally. This is why CMOS sensors have a great advantage in terms of cost.
