CCD area image sensor


TDI operation/large active area CCD

S9979 is a FFT-CCD area image sensor specifically designed for low-light-level detection in scientific applications. In particular, this image sensor is ideally suited for extremely low-light-level detection in such fields as spectroscopy and astronomy. By operating this image sensor in MPP mode, the dark current can be exceedingly reduced. Moreover, use of the low-noise readout amplifier enables low-light-level detection and long integration time, thus achieving a wide dynamic range.
