Title (EN) CHARGE-COUPLED IMAGE SENSOR WITH BINNING SAME-COLOR PIXELS
(FR) CAPTEUR D'IMAGE À COUPLAGE DE CHARGE AVEC REGROUPEMENT DES PIXELS DE MÊME COULEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A CCD image sensor comprises photosensitive elements arranged in rows and columns, vertical CCDs each having vertical shift elements associated with respective ones of the photosensitive elements of a corresponding one of the columns, and a horizontal CCD coupled to each of the vertical CCDs. The horizontal CCD comprises horizontal shift elements of two different types interspersed with one another. The horizontal shift elements of the first type are configured to receive shifted charge packets directly from respective ones of the vertical CCDs. The horizontal shift elements of the second type are configured not to receive shifted charge packets directly from any of the vertical CCDs. This configuration facilitates binning of same-color pixels for both sparse CFA patterns and Bayer CFA patterns.
(FR) L'invention concerne un capteur d'image CCD comprenant des éléments photosensibles disposés en rangées et en colonnes, des CCD verticaux ayant chacun des éléments verticaux de décalage associés aux éléments photosensibles correspondants d'une des colonnes correspondante, et un CCD horizontal couplé à chacun des CCD verticaux. Les CCD verticaux comprennent des éléments de décalage de deux types différents intercalés les uns par rapport aux autres. Les éléments de décalage horizontaux du premier type sont configurés pour recevoir des paquets de charge décalés provenant des CCD verticaux correspondants. Les éléments de décalage horizontaux du second type sont configurés pour recevoir directement des paquets de charge décalés provenant de n'importe quel CCD vertical. Cette configuration facilite le regroupement de pixels de même couleur aussi bien pour les matrices CFA creuses que pour les matrices Bayer CFA.
