Abstract
Technology developed for a 5.5 μm pixel interline transfer CCD family has been incorporated into a new family of highperformance 7.4 μm pixel CCDs, providing significant improvements in several key performance parameters compared to both the 5.5 μm family as well as the previous generation of 7.4 μm pixel products. Smear in the new platform has been reduced to -115 dB, and frame rate has been doubled relative to the previous generation of 7.4 μm pixel products. Dynamic range in normal operation has been improved to 70 dB, and the platform supports a new extended dynamic range mode which provides 82 dB when binning 2 × 2. The new family leverages the package and pin-out configurations used in the 5.5 μm pixel family, allowing easy integration into existing camera designs.
