MSc thesis project proposal

Low-power CMOS image sensor

CMOS image sensors perform the functions of eyes for various applications, such as machine vision systems, autonomous vehicles, surveillance, traffic management, etc. Such applications also requite image sensors to consume as low power as possible from the battery. In this project, we will develop low-power readout ICs for such image sensors.



The following project activities are expected:

·         Comprehensive literature study

·         System-level behaviour model

·         Transistor-level circuit design

·         A tapeout is highly encouraged

·         Thesis writing


You are an ambitious master student with good analog circuit design knowledge and high motivation. You should have obtained good grades from the following courses: Measurement and instrumentation, Analog circuit design fundamentals, CMOS I/II, Power conversion in CMOS technology.
