Kodak Drives CCD Integration and Performance With New Interline Image Sensor

Photonics Spectra
Nov 2000
Eastman Kodak Company has introduced the Kodak Digital Science KAI-1020 image sensor, a new one million pixel interline CCD imager which integrates most of the discrete components previously required to build a digital camera system. The device represents a new level of digital imaging integration and allows Kodak customers to more easily develop cost-effective and power efficient cameras, the company said.

One of the most complex elements of digital camera design is the need to control the multiple clock signals at various voltages that drive the electronic shutter and then transfer the image through and out of the CCD. The KAI-1020 simplifies this design process by integrating an on-chip shutter driver, vertical clock driver and a correlated double sampling (CDS) unit on the same die as the CCD. The level of integration offered by the KAI-1020 reduces the number of components required to build a digital camera, resulting in smaller size, lower power consumption and lower cost, the company said.

"The launch of the KAI-1020 is another example of Kodak innovation and expertise in CCD imaging," said Chris McNiffe, vice president of marketing and sales at Image Sensor Solutions. "A key part of our product strategy is to continue to simplify the development process for our customers without compromising performance or image quality. The KAI-1020 is an excellent example of this strategy in action."

The KAI-1020 can be used for a wide range of applications including machine vision, industrial control cameras and scientific and medical imaging products.
