Definitions for "Binning"
Combining the electrons from adjacent pixels to create, in effect, a single larger pixel.
Binning involves combining pixels on a CCD chip to create larger pixels. For example, taking a 2x2 square of pixels and creating one pixel that is twice the width and four times the area of the original pixel. This is done to increase sensitivity or to match a long focal length telescope to a CCD camera with small pixels.
In CCD imaging technology, the technique of combining the charge from adjacent pixels so that the total charge can be read out as an image. See parallel binning, serial binning.
See discretization.
Binning partitions continuous data into discrete groups, transforming real data into categorical data. For example, a continuous range of ages can be binned as 0-18, 19-25, 26-35, and so on. These groups or bins are defined as regions of a continuum that do not overlap.
A search optimization technique that a BSP may employ. It is based on searching the population according to the intrinsic characteristics of the biometric data. The database of the biometric data may be, for example, presorted in order to speed up matching captured biometric data with comparison data. While it may improve the speed of the match operation, it may also increase the probability of missing a candidate.
During fabrication, LEDs grow in the form of a crystal wafer. A 2-inch diameter wafer can carry more than 20,000 LED chips. Color and intensity variations are common across a wafer. LEDs can be “binned” into various groups by wavelength, luminous intensity, voltage drops, and other characteristics.
Classifying chips by their performance (usually speed)--the analogy is to physically drop things into different bins. This happens at the final test. Once the chips have been packaged, they are tested one more time to see if they work and how well they perform.
