TSMC 0.8um-0.9um Pixel Paper

MDPI Special Issue on the 2017 International Image Sensor Workshop (IISW) gets one more TSMC paper "A 45 nm Stacked CMOS Image Sensor Process Technology for Submicron Pixel" by Seiji Takahashi, Yi-Min Huang, Jhy-Jyi Sze, Tung-Ting Wu, Fu-Sheng Guo, Wei-Cheng Hsu, Tung-Hsiung Tseng, King Liao, Chin-Chia Kuo, Tzu-Hsiang Chen, Wei-Chieh Chiang, Chun-Hao Chuang, Keng-Yu Chou, Chi-Hsien Chung, Kuo-Yu Chou, Chien-Hsien Tseng, Chuan-Joung Wang, and Dun-Nien Yaung.

"In this work, we demonstrated a low dark current of 3.2 e−/s at 60 °C, an ultra-low read noise of 0.90 e− rms, a high full well capacity (FWC) of 4100 e−, and blooming of 0.5% in 0.9 μm pixels with a pixel supply voltage of 2.8 V. In addition, the simulation study result of 0.8 μm pixels is discussed."
