CCD Image Sensor Addresses Inspection & Surveillance Applications

ON Semiconductor’s KAI-43140 43-Mpixel resolution, charge-coupled device (CCD) image sensor comes in a 35-mm optical format, suitable for use in applications such as end of line inspection of high-definition (HD) and ultra-high-definition (UHD) flat panel displays and aerial photography.

 

The device employs a 4.5-µm Interline Transfer CCD (ITCCD) pixel that increases resolution by 50% compared to the prior 5.5 µm design while preserving critical imaging performance. Featuring a true electric “global” shutter, the device supports full resolution frame rates up to 4 fps using flexible 1, 2, or 4 output readout architecture. The KAI-43140 shares the same package and pin definitions as the popular 29 MP KAI-29050 and KAI-29052 image sensors, allowing it to be incorporated into existing camera designs with only minor electrical changes – speeding time-to-market for adoption of the new device while retaining continuity with existing camera and lens installations.
