For the first time, the Framos hands-on training "Characterization of a CMOS camera" will be held in the UK in London on 26 and 27 March 2019. In this practical two-day course, the expert Prof Dr Albert Theuwissen will share his knowledge of image sensors with technical imaging engineers involved in solid-state sensor measurements.
The CMOS hands-on training focuses on the extraction of all performance data of a solid-state camera without knowing how it was designed and built. The techniques learned in this course are suited to benchmark the performance of camera models with other products in the market.
During the two-day intensive training, the attendees will experience the pros and cons of solid-state image sensors. The participants learn how to measure camera characteristics using both dark and bright images and to evaluate an existing off-the-shelf camera by measuring various noise components and other electro-optical parameters, such as MTF, QE, blooming, linearity, full well capacity, dynamic range etc.
About the speaker
Theuwissen is an expert in the field of image sensors. As a part-time professor at the Dutch Delft University of Technology, his main focus is on researching and coaching in the field of CMOS image sensors. After spending several years as CTO and Lead Scientist for DALSA, he is now focused on training, coaching and teaching in the field of solid-state imaging technology with his company, Harvest Imaging. The SMPTE‘s (Society for Motion Pictures and Television Engineers) Fuji Gold Medal was awarded to Theuwissen for his contributions in research, development and education.
