Characterization of a CMOS Camera - Hands-On Training

The course is intended for technical imaging experts and engineers who are involved in solid-state sensor measurements

About The Training

This training is focusing on the extraction of all performance data of a solid-state camera without knowing what is inside the camera. The techniques learned are ideally suited to check what your competitor is doing or to benchmark the performance of your own camera with other products out in the market.

The amount of characteristics of a camera that can be measured in dark (= day 1 of the training) as well as with light (= day 2 of the training) is astonishing. The participants will work in a team of 2 people and after a short introduction, to make them familiar with the hardware and software, they will start performing the camera evaluation themselves. 

Your Benefits

Experience the pros and cons of solid-state image sensor 

Learn to evaluate an existing camera available on the market

Measure yourself the various noise components, temporal as well as fixed-pattern noise

Learn how to measure other electro-optical parameters such as MTF, QE, Blooming, linearity, full well, dynamic range,...

Dr. Albert Theuwissen authored the book „Solid-State Imaging with Charge-Coupled Devices“. This work is still considered as one of the main textbooks in the field of solid-state imaging. In March 2001, he became part-time professor at the Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. In Delft his main attention goes to the coaching of PhD students researching CMOS image sensors. 

In April 2002, he joined DALSA Corp. to act first as the company‘s Chief Technology Officer and later as the Chief Scientist of DALSA Semiconductors. After he left DALSA in September 2007, he founded Harvest Imaging and now he is fully focusing on training, coaching and teaching in the field of solid-state imaging technology. In 2008 Albert Theuwissen received the SMPTE‘s (Society for Motion Pictures and Television Engineers) Fuji Gold Medal for his contributions in research, development and education in the field of solid-state image capturing.

What People Have Said About Previous Events with the FRAMOS Imaging Experts Academy

Knowledge which is not in the books. Instructor reacted to every question.
Christian D.
Very good way to gain expertise on a difficult technical field.
Stephanie G.
Right mix between technical knowledge and personal (praxis) note.
Sebastian Sch.

Delft University of Technology, Netherlands Harvest Imaging, Belgium

Target Group

Technical imaging experts and engineers who are involved in solid-state sensor measurements of their own products or in evaluation of their competitor's camera performance.  It should be noted that this course is mainly hands-on with a minimum about theory, so the training is intended for participants with minimum 1 or 2 years experience in solid-state imaging.
