Nikon Patent - Multilayer BSI Stacked CMOS Sensor

Nikon Multilayer sensor patent

We already have Nikon BSI CMOS sensor patents, with dual pixel CMOS AF technology. Today we have spotted a new sensor patent.  The new patent surfaced today suggest that Nikon is working on a Multilayer Stacked BSI CMOS sensor. Type of Sensor that we have already seen inside the Sony A9 camera.

Patent No – No. 6048482 (P6048482) click here
Registration date – December 2, 2016.12.2
Publication date – December 21st, Heisei 28 (2016.12.21)
Image Omitted – Structure of sensor No. 11 is a first layer chip with PD, and No. 12 is a stacked secondary layer chip with memory and A / D converter. Both layers are connected with micro – bumps shown as No. 15.

Nikon do make their sensor but they are very limited, there they are limited FSI Technology. On the other hand Nikon D850 uses 45MP BSI CMOS sensor from Sony. We do hope in the next few years we will sure see Mutlilayer Stacked BSI sensors from Nikon.

Also wee – Nikon Future Lenses are coming with Touch and Pressure sensor. | Nikon Mirrorless Coming at CP+ 2018 Show and more…

Sony Multilayer Stacked Sensor Patent

Sony Multilayer Sensor Patent Image

New patent surfaced over the web  that shows Sony stacked CMOS sensor with layers. The sensor is composed of multi layers and these layers will sure help to extract the maximum image quality from the given scene. Current generation of Sony RX100 V and RX10 III are using stacked CMOS sensor and do hope next generation of stacked CMOS sensor are on its way.

Not much details are available at the moment so let’s take a look at the patent and source link is mentioned below

[Publication number] Japanese Unexamined Patent Application Publication No. 2017-157801 (P2017-157801A) crick here
[Publication date] September 7, Heisei 20 (2017.9.7)
Photoelectric conversion device, method for manufacturing photoelectric conversion device, solid-state imaging device

Sony 3 Layer Sensor for Smartphones

three later sensor

Well Sony announced three layer Stacked CMOS sensor for smartphones. The sensor is capable to record superslow motion movies upto 960fps.

Sony R&D Dep pushing technology to a next level by adding alien tech inside the small smartphones. Imagine a Smartphone that that captures 960fps video on the go.

The Changes Made: Till now Sony was developing 2 layer sensor for smartphones a while ago that consist of stacked CMOS image sensor with a layer of back-illuminated structure pixels and a chip affixed with mounted circuits for signal processing.

But Now a new DRAM layer added to the conventional 2 layer sensor making it 6X more faster than conventional sensors.

The Major Advantage you get is you can record Full HD video at 60fps and that’s truly amazing.

Camera using three layer stacked sensor: Sony RX10II, Sony RX100 IV and Sony RX100 V also features DRAM tech based sensor with HFR (High Frame Rate).

Sony Multilayer Sensor with Built-in Lens


A new multilayer sensor patent surfaced over the web, the sensor have a built in lens that will automatically correct the incident angle at the corner which usually causes heavy color shifting, huge vignetting and loss of sharpness.

The sensor tech will also support third party lenses that also includes wide angle lenses. We also do hope that Sony will soon announce multilayer fullframe sensor camera.

One More Multilayer Sensor from Sony

Sony new multilayer sensor patent surfaced over the web with redesigned microlens pattern, take a look at the translated details below…

Sony is favorable to telecentric multilayer sensor of patent is being filed. It seems to realize by the microlens that strengthened the asymmetry.

Explanation self interpretation of patent literature

  • Patent Publication No. 2015-28960
    • Published 2015.2.12
    • Filing date 2011.12.1
  • Sony patents
    • Stacked photoelectric conversion unit ( multi-sensor )
    • By condensing element strengthened enough asymmetry to be away from the center of the imaging plane (microlenses), and close to perpendicular to the imaging plane incident light
