An ultra-low power 128 times 64 pixels vision sensor is here presented, featuring pixel-level spatial contrast extraction and binarization. The asynchronous readout only dispatches the addresses of the asserted pixels in bursts of 80 MB/s, significantly reducing the amount of data at the output. The pixel-embedded binary frame buffer allows the sensor to directly process visual information, such as motion and background subtraction, which are the most useful filters in machine vision applications. The presented sensor consumes less than 100 muW at 50 fps with 25% of pixel activity. Power consumption can be further reduced down to about 30 muW by operating the sensor in Idle-Mode, thus minimizing the sensor activity at the ouput.
