An image transceiver device (ITD) is under development at the Holon Institute and Ben Gurion University. The device, capable of performing imaging and display functions in a single chip, is based on a combination of CMOS and LCOS technologies. Its main applications include smart goggles and vision enhancement. We report on studies to reduce the cross-talk in the ITD chip. These studies, which cover an n-well, a twin-well and a deep p-well structure, indicate that the deep p-well structure is the preferred approach resulting in the lowest cross-talk level of all three candidates. The second area studied was a novel design of an FPGA chip required in order to control the unique imager-display circuitry of the ITD. Details of the controller circuitry and its functions are presented.
