A complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) image sensor with low-noise global shuttering and a dual-shuttering mode is presented. The developed two-stage charge transfer pixel enables noise canceling by means of true correlated double sampling. The implemented prototype demonstrates for the first time that a noise level of less than three electrons can be achieved in a global-shutter CMOS image sensor while attaining high shutter efficiency of 99.7%. In the dual-shuttering mode, both a pinned storage diode signal and a floating diffusion signal are used for desirable functions such as wide-dynamic-range imaging, motion detection, and dual consecutive snapshot imaging.
