Sony and Cypress Holographic Strorage System Sensors

Tech-On: Sony demonstrated high-throughput holographic storage system. The system employs a CMOS sensor featuring a frame frequency of 1.5 kfps. The sensor been adopted to increase the data transfer rate at the time of playback. The pixel count is 512 x 512. The data transfer rate at the time of playback increases as the frame frequency of CMOS sensor that receives the reproduced signal light and converts it into an electric signal is enhanced.

Incidentally, Cypress demonstrates custom-made fast image sensor designs, including a sensor for holographic data storage.

Looks like fast sensors are becoming the new design frontier.
