The advent and evolution of the monolithic photodiode array, in the form of the self-scanned (SSPD) and charge coupled (CCPD) photodiode array, and the microcomputer have been major component advances in electro-optical image sensor system's technology. This paper describes the basic aspects of the photodiode array, and then the concept of image sensing by line and matrix photodiode arrays-with applications emphasized. A statement on the objective of an image sensing electro-optical system is then provided, along with an identification of a system's major components, their system's function, and general applications comments on each component.
