A CMOS image sensor with pixel-parallel analog-to-digital (A/D) conversion fabricated with different array sizes and photodiode types in a three-metal 0.5-μm process is presented. Nominal power dissipation is 40 nW per pixel at VDD=3.3 V. A/D conversion results from sampling a free-running photocurrent-controlled oscillator to give a first-order Σ-Δ sequence. The sensor displays dynamic range capability of greater than 150000:1 and exhibits fixed pattern noise correctable to within 0.1% of signal
