Philips Imaging Technology has succeeded in fabricating an image sensor especially suited for digital image processing. The FT12 sensor is of the frame transfer type and designed for 2/3' optical format. It has a high resolution (1024 X 1024 in interlaced mode), overexposure handling by means of vertical anti-blooming and square pixels of 7.5 micrometers by 7.5 micrometers . The data rate is 60 fields per second in interlaced mode. Its single output register can run up to 40 MHz. The register can be clocked bi-directionally, which makes it possible to produce a mirrored image. These properties make it perfectly suited for machine vision applications, like pattern recognition and real-time process monitoring. The paper describes the sensor, simulation results, measurements, as well as the implementation of the sensor in a camera module.
