About The Sony ICX274 Interline CCD Chip

The ICX274AL is a diagonal 8.923mm (Type 1/1.8) interline CCD solid-state image sensor with a square pixel array and 2.01M effective pixels. Progressive scan allows all pixels' signals to be output independently within approximately 1/15 second, and output is also possible using various addition and pulse elimination methods.

This chip features an electronic shutter with variable charge-storage time which makes it possible to realize full-frame still images without a mechanical shutter. Further, high sensitivity and low dark current are achieved through the adoption of Super HAD CCD technology.

Applications: Still cameras which require high resolution, etc.

The Sony ICX274 Interline Features

  • High horizontal and vertical resolution with square pixels
  • Supports the following modes: Progressive scan mode (with/without mechanical shutter) - 2/8-line readout mode - 2/4-line readout mode - 2-line addition mode - Center scan modes (1), (2) and (3) - AF modes (1) and (2)
  • Horizontal drive frequency: 28.6364MHz (typ.), 36.0MHz (max.)
  • Reset gate bias need no adjustment
  • High sensitivity, low dark current
  • Continuous variable-speed shutter function
  • Excellent anti-blooming characteristics
