New Pixel Design and Drive Technology

New Pixel Design and Drive Technology

The pixels of the Canon 3U5MGXS CMOS sensor include a gathering structure which enables photons entering from wide incident angles to be re-directed into the photodiode which otherwise would be lost. The result is a CMOS image sensor with higher sensitivity, capable of capturing high quality images even in challenging low-light situations.
