Diagonal 4.5mm (Type 1/4) Progressive Scan CCD Image Sensor with Square Pixel for Color Cameras
The ICX618AQA is a diagonal 4.5mm (Type 1/4) interline CCD solid-state image sensor with a square pixel
array which supports VGA format. Progressive scan enables all pixel signals to be output separately within
approximately 1/60 second.
This chip features an electronic shutter with variable charge-storage time which makes it possible to realize
full-frame still images without a mechanical shutter. High resolution and high color reproducibility are achieved
through the use of R, G, B primary color mosaic filters.
The G sensitivity and near infrared sensitivity are improved drstically through the adoption of advanced EXview
HAD CCD technology.
This chip is suitable for applications such as security cameras and network cameras, etc.
The ICX618AQA has different spectral characteristics from the current CCD.
� High G sensitivity ( + 4.5dB compared with the ICX098BQ, + 2.5dB compared with the ICX614AQA)
� High saturation signal ( + 4.0dB compared with the ICX098BQ, + 2.0dB compared with the ICX614AQA)
� Low smear ( 8.0dB compared with the ICX098BQ, ICX614AQA)
� Progressive scan enables individual readout of the image signals from all pixels.
