Abstract

A Programmable Silicon Retina is presented targeting the use of efficient analog computation for early vision. The decoding and programmability methods employed lead to a dynamic and wide range of vision operations including edge enhancement, edge detection and averaging. A prototype chip implementing a 15×15 matrix of photoreceptors was fabricated in a double poly double metal N-well 2 μm process.
