This paper presents an architecture and a circuit design of readout address compression for a high-speed 3-D range-finding image sensor using the light-section method. We utilize a kind of variable-length code which is modified to suit the 3-D range-finder. The best compression rate by the proposed compression technique is 33.3%. The worst compression and the average compression rate is 56.4% and 42.4%, respectively, when we simulated the effectivity by using the example of measured sheet scans. We also show the measurement result of the fabricated image sensor with the address compression.
