An image sensor, including a substrate having formed thereon by a CMOS process a digital sensor array having a plurality of digital pixel sensors which output analog signals corresponding to a desired image. The digital sensor array further includes supporting circuitry for converting the analog signals produced by the digital pixel sensors to digital signals corresponding to the desired image. Filter circuitry, for converting the digital signals to digital values representative of the light intensity impinging upon the plurality of digital pixel sensors...
1. An image sensor, comprising:a substrate having formed thereon a digital sensor array;the digital sensor array having a plurality of digital pixel elements, each comprising a photosensor and an analog-to-digital conversation circuit, the photosensor producing an analog signal when the image sensor is exposed to light, the analog-to-digital conversation circuit receiving the analog signal and generating a digital representation thereof;the substrate having formed thereon at least one programmable logic structure programmable externally to control operat...
