Caeleste introduces SPAD technology in standard CMOS process

posted by Patrick @ 13:18 PM

Caeleste successfully designed and tested a SPAD (single photon avalanche diode) photon counting image sensor. After a first successful demonstration with hybrid avalanche photodiode, Caeleste introduces integrated, compact pixels with avalanche photodiodes, allowing large resolution image sensor with single photon detection capabilities in the visible spectrum range. The demonstrated array has 32×32 pixels on a 30µm pitch, in TSMC 0.18µm technology. Several  SPAD pixel variants are optimized for QE, dark count and afterpulsing.
