Paper Abstract

A new high-speed CCD-sensor, capable of capturing 103 consecutive images at a speed of 1 million frames per second, was developed by the authors. To reach this high frame-rate, 103 CCD-storage-cells are placed next to each image-pixel. Sensors utilizing this on-chip-memory-concept can be called In-situ Storage Image Sensor or ISIS. The ISIS is build in standard CCD-technology. To check if this technology could be used for an ISIS, a test sensor called ISIS V1 was designed first. The ISIS V1 is just a simple modification of an existing standard CCD-sensor and it is capable of taking 17 consecutive images. The new sensor called ISIS V2 is a dedicated design in the existing technology. It is equipped with storage CCD-cells that are also used in the standard CCD-sensor, large light-sensitive pixels, an overwriting mechanism to drain old image information and a CCD-switch to use a part of the storage cells also as vertical read-out registers. Nevertheless, the new parts in the architecture had to be simulated by a 3-D device simulator. Simulation results and characteristic parameters of the ISIS-CCD as well as applications of the camera are given.
