A frame transfer image sensor has been fabricated for 2/3' optical format. It has a high resolution (1024 X 1024), overexposure handling by means of vertical anti-blooming and square pixels of 7.5 micrometers by 7.5 micrometers . The data-rate is 30 frames per second. 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. The noise level of the output amplifier is 31 electrons (rms value in 18 MHz bandwidth). These properties make the imager perfectly suited for machine vision applications where full resolution in a single shot is required. The paper describes the sensor, simulation results and measurements.
