History of Innovations

International Journal of Engineering Research & Technology (IJERT) publishes a paper "CMOS Image Sensors: Recent Innovations in Imaging Technology" by Gagan Khanduri, Dev Bhoomi Institute of Technology, Dehradun, India. Most of the "recent innovations" in the paper are a deep history by now:


  1. I guess "recent" is a matter of relativity. This paper is a rehash of my 1997 paper and others that followed. Some academics are under a lot of pressure to publish something somewhere, and this what can happen. It is happening a lot, but not so much in image sensors. Sometimes entire papers are plagiarized and republished in less reputable journals under someone else's name.

  2. Which parts were using the PPS architecture? were any with general availability? would love to get some for my collection

    I do agree with the definition of "recent". All references have a date of 2003 or earlier, except the two last ones. They are 2019. Apparently between 2003 and 2019 no major developments took place in the CIS world. Some people have a long winter sleep period ....
