The sensor has an image area having 6144 x 6160 pixels, split read-out registers at both top and bottom with charge detection amplifiers at both ends. The pixel size is 15 um square. The image area has four separately connected sections to allow full-frame, frame transfer, split full-frame or split frame-transfer modes. Depending on the mode, the read-out can be through 1, 2 or 4 of the output circuits. A gate-controlled drain is also provided adjacent to each of the registers to allow fast dumping of unwanted data.
