Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS)

Complementary metal-oxide semiconductor sensor. A type of imaging sensor in which the charge-to-voltage conversion is done at each individual pixel and the signal is read out by a multiplexing to an A/D converter. Can yield a less uniform output and very low power dissipation compared to CCD, but at much higher speeds due to lack of shift registers.
