Paper Abstract

The authors have developed a second generation CCD image sensor for high speed motion analysis. The 2/3 inch format device is constructed on a 16 micrometers square pixel pitch with 512 (H) X 512 (V) active elements. Design is based on a progressive scan interline transfer architecture with a vertical overflow drain for blooming and exposure control. Full resolution is achieved at 1,000 frames per second by use of eight parallel outputs operating at a data rate of 40 MHz per tap. Other performance parameters include dynamic range of 62 dB, less than 1% image lag, and very low smear. This work details the essential design features and reports results of our preliminary evaluation.
