Usually, a mechanical shutter is necessary for high-end consumer cameras to get rid of the image distortion when shooting moving objects. However, it is not feasible to implement such a mechanical shutter for industrial applications because of cost, shutter speed and life time. CMOS image sensors with electronic global shutter make it possible to have all pixels capturing the image at exact the same moment, which is ideal for shooting fast moving objects in industrial scenes.
X-ray is electromagnetic radiation with extremely short wavelength and hence ultra-high frequency. Since X-ray is penetrative, it is widely used in medical imaging and industrial inspections.
The ratio of the maximum and minimum light intensity that can be detected in an image is defined as the dynamic range. High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology is necessary to keep both the bright and dark details in high contrast scenes.
The CMOS image sensors of RGBIC can provide different HDR modes, like pixel gain tuning, dual exposure control and multi-slope HDR to capture high quality images even in extreme light conditions.
