Image Sensors for Industry and Sensing Use
A type of sensor that is widely used in various applications to detect and deliver proper information, used to create an image is referred to an image sensor. These type of sensors use light waves and electromagnetic radiation to detect, convert, and convey information to the device which it is used in.
Image sensors can be found primarily in camera modules, medical imaging equipment, radar, sonar, other thermal imaging devices, etc. There are basically two types of image sensors, digital image sensor and analogue image sensor. The digital image sensors are widely adopted currently, owing to its various benefits as compared to analogue sensors.
Increasing adoption of image sensors in various end use industries, especially in automobiles is a major factor driving growth of the global image sensor market. In addition, increasing use of advanced image sensors in mobile devices coupled with growing demand for miniature image sensors in medical imaging equipment are other factors anticipated to boost growth of the global image sensor market over the forecast period.
There are two type in Image Sensors technology : CMOS , CCD.
