An Analog Wavelet Transform CMOS Imager Chip

Adeel Abbas, Saurav Panda, Vikram Shirgur

Graduate Advisor: Shantanu Chakrabartty

520.490 Analog and Digital VLSI Systems

- Hardware Implementation of Image Compression
- Small size
- Reconfigurable to compute user-defined functions (e.g. Walsh Transform, Hadamard Transform)
- Edge detection, pattern matching

- Multi-resolution feature extraction
- Many basis functions available, Haar Wavelet implemented
- Haar transform is a combination of summing and difference operations

- Haar Transform can be realized as a Matrix Vector Multiplication problem
- W (i,j) = ( ΣA(i)×P(i,j) ) × B(j)
- Multiply with either +1, 0 or -1
- Inputs are presented in bit-serial fashion

- 16 x 24 pixel array
- 2 CDS stages for inner and outer products
- Product coefficients input through shift registers

- Charge mode implementation
- Product Coefficient provided in two phases
- Output of all cells is dumped to a common line
- Charge is either dumped or extracted from output line

- Uses photodiode type design
- Susceptible to mismatches in transistor sizing
- Fill Factor: 60 %
- Dimensions: 89λ x 89λ

- Cascoded inverter used for high gain
- Phase of B(i) determines whether we connect output capacitor to CDS or Vref
- CDS stage 1 adds charge across columns, Stage 2 adds output of CDS circuits in stage 1

- Operating Frequency of 11KHz
- Photocurrent of 60pA
- Sequencing of 1st and 2nd stage clocks is very important
- Here we are multiplying by -1

- Here again we are multiplying by -1
- Output valid during Hold phase of stage 2
- Voltage range of 1.76V to 4.23V, with reference at nearly 3 V

- Parallel readout (currently can be used as a random-access imager)
- Extend for a 3 x 3 pad-frame. Would allow a resolution of around 72x72
- More test pins. Currently the chip utilizes 29 pins
