Fast Image Sensor Simulator

Ecole Centrale de Lyon publishes a 2014 PhD Thesis by Zhenfu Feng "Fast Scalable and Variability Aware CMOS Image Sensor Simulation Methodology" devoted to a fast LUT-based image sensor simulator built in Cadence environment:


The simulator was used to explore Monte-Carlo pixel variability, starting from classical 3T pixel to quite exotic structures, like carbon nanotube transistor-based pixel.

  1. By flying over the thesis, I'm pretty sure that the PhD student and also his advisor have no idea about what happens inside a circuit simulation program. This work is totally useless!

    1. Can you explain more in detail ? Why do you think their work is useless ?

    3. You may prefer A380, but it doesn't change the landscape.

    4. It certainly changes one's view, I for one, was certainly impressed!
