[C15] The CAMEL approach to stacked sensor smart cameras


Stacked image sensor systems combine an image sensor, memory, and processors using 3D technology. Stacking camera components that have traditionally been packaged separately provides several benefits: very high bandwidth out of the image sensor, allowing for higher frame rates; very low latency, providing opportunities for image processing and computer vision algorithms which can adapt at very high rates; and lower power consumption. This paper will review the characteristics of stacked image sensor systems and discuss novel algorithmic and systems concepts that are made possible by these stacked sensors.
