The human eye is a fascinating and complicated device, but how do digital cameras capture images? This free course, Microelectronic solutions for digital photography, examines one of the humanmachine interfaces that link optical information to the electronic world. You will learn how the components within a digital camera capture images for electronic manipulation.
Course learning outcomes
After studying this course, you should be able to:
describe how to use metal–oxide–semiconductor (MOS) structures for light capture, switches and latches
distinguish between CMOS and CCD strategies for image capture.
I was looking for an article to explain how the CMOS image scanner in my Raspberry Pi camera module works and this course extract does so in clear terms.
