A 1M-pixel progressive-scan interline-transfer CCD image sensor has been developed.It features high resolution, real- time speed and square pixels. A real-time speed was obtained by a pair of H-CCDs, located at the upper and lower of the image area and driven at 43MHz. Charges of the upper and lower halves of the image area are output separately by using the upper and lower H-CCDs, respectively. This operation enables a 1024 by 1024 progressive scan at 60 frame/sec. The device can be operated in a 512 by 512 progressive scan at 120 frame/sec by combining the charges in each of two vertically-adjacent pixels and two horizontally-adjacent pixels. Furthermore, a 1024 by 1024 interlace scan at 120 field/sec is also acceptable for either frame-integration or field-integration. The device can also be operated in a 1024 by 1024 progressive scan at 30 frame/sec by using only one of the H-CCD.
