Paper Abstract

A second generation of high-frame-rate 512 X 512 and 1024 X 1024 pixel CCD imagers has been fabricated. These thinned, back-illuminated frame transfer imagers, designed for optical signal-processing applications, employ a split-frame transfer into dual storage registers and multiple output ports for increased frame rates. Reported here are measured characteristics of 16-port 512 X 512 and 32-port 1024 X 1024 imagers from the second design/fabrication cycle. Data are presented characterizing quantum efficiency, dynamic range, antiblooming control operation, high-speed performance, and on-chip correlated-double-sampling amplifier noise.
