Taking into consideration the continued erratic development of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying restrictions of worldwide travelling as well as the safety and health of the DATE community, the Organizing Committees decided to host DATE 2021 as a virtual conference in early February 2021. Unfortunately, the current situation does not allow a face-to-face conference in Grenoble, France.

The Organizing Committees are working intensively to create a virtual conference that gives as much of a real conference atmosphere as possible.


W09.2.2 Benefits of 3D stacking process for Event Based sensors

Jean-Luc Jaffard, Prophesee, France
  • About the talk: 3D stacking processes are very suitable for Image sensor with complex pixel structure composed of many components. During the talk, we will discuss the unique nature of event based sensor and the trade offs to optimize their design using  3D Stacking process. Long-term evolutions of the 3D integration for intelligent image sensor will also be discussed.
