  • Publication number: 20220311892
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes circuitry to determine a type of a document based on a determination result of a character area and a non-character area in an input image of the document; select a model to be used in top-bottom determination from a plurality of models based on the type of the document; reduce the input image, to generate a reduced image; and cut out a part of the input image as a partial image. The circuitry outputs a top-bottom determination result of the input image using the selected model and one of the reduced image and the partial image corresponding to the model.

  • Publication number: 20160219239
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a solid-state imaging device is provided which comprises a photoelectric conversion element, a floating diffusion, a first capacitor, a first terminal, a second capacitor, a comparator, and a second terminal. The first capacitor is connected at one terminal to the floating diffusion. The first terminal is connected to the other terminal of the first capacitor, and a reference voltage of which the voltage value falls to a predetermined minimum and then rises to a predetermined maximum, is inputted to the first terminal. The second capacitor is connected at one terminal to the floating diffusion. The comparator has the other terminal of the second capacitor connected to its input and compares the potential on the floating diffusion and a threshold. The second terminal is connected to the output of the comparator, and the comparing result of the comparator is outputted via the second terminal.

  • Publication number: 20160014358
    Abstract: Provided is a method of controlling a solid-state image pickup device according to an embodiment, the method including: resetting a potential of a floating diffusion shared by a plurality of photodiodes; sequentially transferring signal charges, which are photoelectrically converted by the photodiodes, to the floating diffusion in which the potential is reset, in a sequence allocated to the photodiodes, thereby accumulating the transferred signal charges in the floating diffusion; performing a sampling operation on a voltage signal corresponding to the potential of the floating diffusion every time when the signal charge is completely transferred to the floating diffusion from the photodiode; and calculating the voltage signal corresponding to the signal charge transferred to the floating diffusion for each of the photodiodes, based on a difference between two of the voltage signals which are continuously subjected to the sampling operation.
