Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR STORING AND PROCESSING CHARGE-PACKETS
(FR) APPAREIL DE STOCKAGE ET DE TRAITEMENT DE PAQUETS DE CHARGES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An array (10) of charge storage devices (11) each including a pair of closely coupled conductor-insulator-semiconductor celles (12; 14, 15), one a row line (X) connected cell (12) and the other a column line (Y) connected cell (14, 15), is provided on a common semiconductor substrate (21). Readout (81, 116) of the charges stored in a row of devices is accomplished by transferring the charge in each of the devices of an addressed (81) row of devices in one direction between the row line (X) connected cell (12) and the column line (Y) connected cells (14, 15) of a device in sequence (116) and sensing (71-73) the resultant current flow in the row line (X) of the addressed row of devices. Current sensing leads to simplified readout circuitry and operation.
(FR)Une rangee (10) de dispositifs de stockage de charges (11) ayant chacun une paire de condensateurs conducteurs-isolateurs-semi-conducteurs a couplage serre (12, 14, 15), un condensateur (12) connecte a la rangee (X), l"autre etant un condensateur (14, 15) connecte a la colonne (Y), est formee sur un substrat a semi-conducteur commun (21). La lecture (81, 116) des charges stockees dans une rangee de dispositifs est effectuee par transfert de la charge dans chacun des dispositifs d"une rangee de dispositifs adressee (81) dans une direction entre la cellule ou condensateur (12) connectee a la ligne de rangees (X) et les cellules ou condensateurs (14, 15) connectees a la colonne (Y) d"un dispositif en sequence (116) et par detection (71-73) du debit de courant resultant dans la ligne de rangee (X) de la rangee adressee de dispositifs. La detection du courant contribue a simplifier les circuits de lecture et de fonctionnement.
