Paper Abstract

A 111-Mega pixel, 92x92 mm2, full-frame CCD imager with 9x9 um2 pixel size has been developed for use in scientific applications. Recent interest for ultra-high resolution imagers for electronic imaging OEM customers in various scientific markets, including biotechnology, microscopy, crystallography, astronomy, spectroscopy, and aerial reconnaissance markets has lead to the development of the STA1600A 111-Mega pixel monochromatic charge-coupled device. Innovative design techniques were utilized in the early development of this device, yielding low RMS noise and high MTF for readout speeds ranging from 1 Mpixel/s to 25 Mpixel/sec. This paper will provide detailed information on the design and performance capabilities of the STA1600A, as well as background information on the commercial uses of this device.
