- A 256 x 256 pixel full frame CCDimage sensor has been developed that incorporates on-chip d. c. bias generation and clocking. Using a small pixel pitch of 10 im (V) by 10 im (H) these features allow the array to be packaged into very small dimensions with a total pin count of seven pins. By virtue of the three phase architecture the full well storage capacity can be increased with surface channel operation maximizing resolution under conditions of low scene contrast. In addition a modified technique of surface recombination is used to provide blooming suppression. Together these features make it well suited for applications which require a high performance miniature sensor. I.
