Paper Abstract

A high-performance time delay and integration (TDI) CCD image sensor has been developed at DALSA for color scanning applications. The imager comprises three individual 2048 X 32 linear arrays, each with its own color filter for spectral separation. The number of stages in each TDI array can be selected separately in blocks of 4, 8, 16, and 32 for optimum sensitivity over a wide range of illumination conditions. The device is fabricated using a dual metal NMOS buried channel CCD process with a 3-phase, 3-poly imaging region for increased charge storage. The pixel height and pitch is 14 micrometers and the center to center separation between the color channels is 560 micrometers . The data is read out using a 2-phase CCD shift register with a 14 micrometers pitch at an output data rate of 15 MHz per output. The die size is 31.4 mm X 4.3 mm and is housed in a 40 pin, 2.0' X 0.61', dual in line package. In this paper the authors discuss the design and the performance evaluation of the device.
