Abstract
An ultra high resolution image sensor has been developed for industrial and scientific applications. The ultra high resolution sensor is a full-frame CCD sensor, consisting of 2048 x 2048 pixels, and its image area measures 18.43 mm x 18.43 mm. The pixel size is 9 x 9 microns. The sensor has dual readout registers to increase the data rate and can be operated in the single or dual readout register mode. The architecture of this imager is suitable for accumulation mode operation, which results in a very low dark current of 10 pA/sq cm at room temperature.
