  • Publication number: 20200077040
    Abstract: A pixel circuit is disclosed. The pixel circuit includes a photodiode (PD), a transmission circuit, a reset circuit, a signal storage circuit and a buffer circuit. The transmission circuit is coupled between the PD and an ordinary floating diffusion (FD) node. The reset circuit is coupled to the ordinary FD node. The signal storage circuit is coupled to the ordinary FD node. The buffer circuit is coupled to the signal storage circuit. The signal storage circuit may store a PD signal on a specific node having a reduced leakage path in comparison with the ordinary FD node during a holding phase of the pixel circuit, wherein the holding phase is a time interval starting from a first time point at which the PD signal is stored on the specific node and ending at a second time point at which the pixel circuit is selected for performing a read-out operation.

  • Publication number: 20200077041
    Abstract: A pixel circuit includes a front-end circuit, a signal storage circuit, and an output circuit. The signal storage circuit is coupled to the front-end circuit, and the output circuit is coupled to the signal storage circuit. The front-end circuit is arranged to generate pixel signals. The signal storage circuit is arranged to store the pixel signals generated by the front-end circuit, wherein when the pixel circuit is selected for performing a read-out operation, the pixel signals stored in the signal storage circuit are pulled up from original voltage levels to other voltage levels higher than the original voltage levels according to a voltage increment applied to a control voltage. When the pixel circuit is selected for performing the read-out operation, the output circuit generates output signals on an output terminal according to the other voltage levels, respectively.

  • Patent number: 10324929
    Abstract: A query is parsed and positions of symbols of the query are determined. A parse tree including the positions of the symbols is generated based on the parsed query. The parse tree is sent to a DBMS optimizer. The parse tree is transformed into an optimizer tree. The optimizer tree includes the positions of the symbols of the query. Based on the optimizer tree, a query execution plan is generated for the execution of the query. The positions of the symbols of the query is copied from the optimizer tree into the query execution plan. The query execution plan is sent to a query execution engine. The query is executed in accordance with the query execution plan. When a runtime error is detected, an exception message associated with the runtime error is displayed. The error message includes an error code and the positions of the symbols of the query.
