An Introduction about Always On Vision(AONV) Sensor and its Trend
YY SUNG 宋尤昱, Associate Vice President, Himax Imaging Inc.
In the general image, the CMOS image sensor(CIS) is usually used in photo and video recording. Except for these traditional usages, CIS use in computer vision and machine learning becomes more and more popular. Since AIoT applications become more noticeable and low power AI processors become more and more visible. The low power edge device with battery to operate long life without re-charging coming into our life. These kinds of smart detection devices become more realistic and improve the user experience to make our life to be more convenient. In such kind of application, low power will be the key. Except the sensor itself needs to be low power, to make the whole sub-system be lower power is also important. Since CIS is the first stage of such a detection system, it should take an important role to smart wake up the whole system and let the wake-up process be efficient. How CIS plays this role will be shown in this talk.
