Market Wire: InVisage's QuantumShutter solves the rolling shutter problem by using a portion of the silicon to store the image "charge" so the entire image is captured at the exact same moment. Because of its QuantumFilm sitting on top of the pixel, InVisage can use the silicon space underneath for a storage node.
InVisage spent three years engineering the quantum dot material to produce highly-sensitive image sensors that integrate with standard CMOS manufacturing processes. "While other image sensor companies have been focused on increasing the number of pixels, InVisage is focused on bringing completely new thinking and technologies to CMOS image sensors -- like tackling rolling shutter," says Jess Lee, CEO, InVisage Technologies. "InVisage's QuantumShutter will bring better and more reliable picture quality to an industry that is desperate for innovation."
Update: Invisage web site states that the image above came from 1.4um pixel test chip. "This image is the first and only 1.4um pixel in world which can implement this [QuantumShutter] feature." QuantumShutter will be available as an option on InVisage's first product due to be sampling later this year.
