On Semi offers 16.2-megapixel CCD

November 17, 2015 // By Peter Clarke
ON Semiconductor has developed a 16.2-megapixel charge-coupled device (CCD) full-frame image sensor intended for astronomical and scientific applications.

The KAF-16200 makes use of 6.0-micron pixels with a transparent gate electrode and is intended for use in an APS-H (34.6 mm diagonal) optical format.

There are 4500 by 3600 photoactive pixels designed for color or monochrome image sensing applications. Each pixel contains anti−blooming protection by means of a lateral overflow drain thereby preventing image corruption during high light level conditions. Microlenses are added for improved sensitivity on both color and monochrome sensors.

The device provides a doubling of resolution compared with On's current device addressing this segment. The KAF-16200 is available in a RoHS-compliant 32-pin CERDIP package, and is available in both monochrome and color configurations.
