Continuing advances in VLSI technology have made possible image sensors with high resolution. We have developed an ultra-high-resolution image sensor for industrial and scientific applications. The ultra-high-resolution sensor is a full-frame CCD imager consisting of 2048 x 2048 pixels, and measures 1.84 cm x 1.84 cm. The pixel size is 9 microns x 9 microns. The sensor has dual readout registers to increase the data rate. The sensor could be operated in the single or dual readout register mode. In this paper we present the architecture and results of the four-megapixel image sensor.
