Abstract This paper describes improvements in output waveform of pulse frequency modulation (PFM) photosensor to be effectively adapted for retinal prosthesis. A 32/spl times/32-pixel PFM photosensor array chip is fabricated using 0.6 /spl mu/m CMOS technology and demonstrated the improved functions. Also the output pulse pattern is displayed with 32/spl times/32-LED array to visualize the pulse output waveform. The next version of a PFM vision chip is designing for in vivo experiment, in which in-pixel image processing functions in pulse domain are employed.
