Sony announces 10Mp and 16Mp CCD image sensors

Sony announces two new CCD image sensors. The ICX688SQG is an Industry First Digital Output CCD Image Sensor with all the circuitry included to deliver a 12-bit digital output signal. Inclusion of analog circuits and wiring inside the package has made it possible to maximize CCD performance, minimize power consumption and reduce noise. The new ICX682SQW sensor delivers 16.15M effective pixels and has specifically been desined for Consumer DSLRs that offer HD (720/30p) imaging and continuous capturing high-sensitivity still images...

Diagonal 6.149 mm (Type 1/2.93) 10.17M-Effective Pixel Color Digital Output CCD Image Sensor for Consumer Digital Still Cameras

The ICX688SQG is a CCD image sensor featuring a proprietary integrated package technology that integrates an image sensor with a leading edge 1.34 µm unit pixel capability and with the peripheral drive circuits.
All components that are sensitive to noise have been placed inside the package to minimize the impact of parasitic elements.
This has made it possible to maximize low power consumption and low-noise, both characteristics of Sony image sensors, and commercialized the ICX688SQG.
Also, a 12-bit digital output has eliminated the need for analog terminals and contributes to a reduction in analog design time during integration.

ICX682SQW
 
High-Resolution Diagonal 7.757 mm (Type 1/2.3) 16.15M-Effective Pixel Color CCD Image Sensor for Consumer Digital Still Cameras Support High-Definition Television (Equivalent to 720/30p) Imaging and Continuous Capturing High-Sensitivity Still Images

In addition to the needs for even higher resolution in consumer digital still camera market, there are also increasing needs for improved high ISO sensitivity and wider dynamic range.
Sony has now used unique fine pixel fabrication technologies and has developed these to create the ICX682SQW 1.34 µm unit pixel CCD image sensor, which achieves the industry's top class of image sensor characteristics while maintaining a high pixel count.
This CCD image sensor also achieves high-definition television (equivalent to 720/30p) video imaging and high-sensitivity continuous still imaging (4.04M pixels, 5.046 frame/s).
