The sensor has an image area having 6144 × 6160 pixels with registers at both top and bottom each with four outputs for short read-out times. The pixel size is 10 µm square. The image area has two separately connected sections to allow full-frame or split full-frame read-out modes. Depending on the mode, the read-out can be through 4 or 8 of the output circuits. A fixed-barrier dump drain is also provided to allow fast dumping of unwanted data.
