- n. Plural form of photogate.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
There are two basic photosensitive pixel element architectures utilized in modern CMOS image sensors: photodiodes and photogates (see Figure 6).
However, photogates often reach higher charge-to-voltage conversion gain levels and can easily be utilized to perform correlated double sampling to achieve frame differencing.
