The design and performance of the Texas Instruments 800 x 800 CCD imager are described. This device is fabricated utilizing a three phase, three level polysilicon gate process. The chip is thinned to ~ 8 μm and is employed in the rear illumination mode. Detailed measurements of device performance including dark current as a function of temperature, linearity, and noise are presented. The device is coated with a UV downconverting phosphor which allows imaging with the same device over an extremely wide optical bandwidth.
