Kodak uses cluster solution to aid image sensor design

Kodak is using Acceleware's Cluster Solution software to accelerate the design process for optoelectronic image sensors.

'Acceleware's cluster solution helps enable Kodak to develop market-leading, high-performance image sensor products for consumer, professional, and advanced applications,' said Herb Erhardt, manager of the CMOS Sensors business unit at Kodak. 'We have already seen significant productivity improvements that amount to greater than 10x.'

Kodak is using Acceleware’s cluster technology in conjunction with Synopsys' TCAD Sentaurus Device EMW to design advanced image sensors with improved ultra-low-light performance, faster video and that are more easily manufactured. Acceleware's cluster solution enables companies to significantly reduce design cycle times when investigating pixel array performance including analysis of optical crosstalk for normal and oblique incidence light. Characterising pixel performance due to manufacturing tolerances, such as lens misalignment, was previously impractical without fast simulations. However, this is now easily accomplished with Acceleware’s solution. 'We have obtained good correlation between simulated results from the Acceleware solution and our measured results,' said Michael Guidash, manager of CMOS sensor advanced development at Kodak.
