CCD47-20

Back illuminated low noise sensor

This version of the CCD47 family of CCD sensors has frame transfer architecture. Back illumination technology, in combination with extremely low noise amplifiers, makes the device well suited to the most demanding scientific applications.

This device has a single serial output register. Separate charge detection circuits are incorporated at each end of the register, which is split so that a line of charge can be transferred to either output, or split between the two.

The register is provided with a drain and control gate along the outer edge of the channel for charge dump purposes.

Other variants of the CCD47-20 available are front illuminated format and inverted mode.

Designers are advised to consult Teledyne e2v should they be considering using CCD sensors in abnormal environments or if they require customised packaging.

Mission Heritage
