The paper describes the Near Sensor Image Processing (NSIP) paradigm developed in the early 1990s and shows that it was a precursor to recent architectures proposed for direct (in the sensor) image processing and high dynamic range (HDR) image sensing. Both of these architectures are based on the specific properties of CMOS light sensors, in particular the ability to continuously monitor the accumulation of photon-induced charge as a function of time. We further propose an extension of the original NSIP pixel to include a circuit that facilitates temporal and spatio-temporal processing.
