processors that are layered into the CMOS chip. Here, only specified intelligence would be the output, significantly reducing the data bandwidth for the sensor. As heterogeneous integration becomes a manufacturing reality, the developers of this technology will need to be monitored to avoid surprise at its initial introduction into sensor systems.
