Atmel launches high-resolution CCD sensor

JULY 2--Atmel Corp (Grenoble, France;www.atmel.com) has unveiled the AT71201M 16.8 million-pixel CCD full-frame area arrays made up of 4096 x 4096 useful pixels. The image sensor targets applications requiring large-format, very-high-definition, very-low-readout noise and operating mode flexibility for such applications as graphic arts, industrial control, medical imaging, and scientific analysis.

The square format offers 11 x 11-μm pixels, a 100% aperture, and a bandwidth of response of up to 1100 nm for this monochrome version. Main characteristics include very low dark current (MMP mode) and high dynamic range. The CCD is split into four independent zones that are separately driven by four clocks; it can therefore be used in up to 12 sensor modes. Two serial registers and four independent output amplifiers offer a high-frequency functionality of up to 8 frames/s using four outputs at 40 MHz. The CCD sensor also offers 1 x 1, 2 x 2, and 4 x 4 binning modes with a definition of 4096 x 4096, 2048 x 2048, or 1024 x 1024 pixels, respectively.
