Paper Abstract

Brief reviews of the structure and normal operating conditions for manufactured versions of 488 by 380 element CCD image sensors are followed by descriptions of the performance available from typical devices and by description of common types of cosmetic blemishes which limit the yield of production sensors. The 488 by 380 element sensors are fabricated by buried channel CCD technology. They utilize an interline transfer technique to achieve a high CTF at Nyquist frequencies, which results in crisp imagery from reasonable die areas. The sensors also offer wide dynamic range, good low light level capability, and compatibility with NTSC quality requirements.
