About the Sony ICX205AL Sensor.
The Sony ICX205AL is a 1/2-inch optical interline CCD solid-state image sensor with a square pixel array and 1.45M effective pixels. Progressive scan allows all pixels' signals to be output independently within approximately 1/7.5 second. Also, the adoption of high frame rate readout mode supports 30 frames per second.
This chip features an electronic shutter with variable charge-storage time which makes it
possible to realize full-frame still image without a mechanical shutter. High sensitivity and low dark current are achieved through the adoption of HAD (Hole-Accumulation Diode) sensors. This chip is suitable for applications such as electronic still cameras, PC input cameras, etc.
Sony ICX205AL Imaging Sensor Features
- Progressive scan allows individual readout of the
image signals from all pixels.
- High horizontal and vertical resolution (both approx.
1024TV-lines) still image without a mechanical shutter.
- Supports high frame rate readout mode
(effective 256 lines output, 30 frame/s).
- No voltage adjustments (reset gate and substrate bias are not adjusted.)
- High resolution, high sensitivity, low dark current.
- Low smear, excellent antiblooming characteristicsand continuous variable-speed shutter.
