Miniaturized Stereoscopic Distal Imaging Sensor for Minimally Invasive Surgery (MiniSurg)
Start date: Jun 1, 2008, End date: Mar 31, 2011 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Miniaturized Stereoscopic Distal Imaging Sensor for Minimally Invasive Surgery ("MiniSurg") is a project that aims to research and process converging of miniaturized imaging sensor technologies for the most advanced Minimally Invasive Surgery. It aims to overcome packaging, manufacture and potential distortions of CMOS based miniaturized unit. The integrated unit will be of the higher performances a low cost and disposable sensor. MiniSurg's goal is to provide beyond the present state-of-the-art of stereoscopic natural surgery visualization sensor of up to Euro 10 cost. The system on a chip of 7.5 mm in diagonal will be designed for maximum area efficiency, by minimizing electrical contacts areas. The beyond the state of the art stereoscopic imaging performances will be achieved by the research and design of pixel array of 1850 horizontal over 925 vertical and pixel aspect ratio of 3μ width over 4.5μ height, accompanied by significantly low cross talk level (< 10%).MiniSurg project will address unique packaging design and multilevel interfacing to accomplish the system performance goals. In particular MiniSurg will design chip package for the optic mounting. The high accuracy of this assembly below 10μm) will enable to shrink the chip for a minimum of pixel area due to the tolerances during optic assembly.
