About The Kodak Full Frame KAF-1603ME Grade 2 Sensor...

The Kodak KAF-1603 Image Sensor is a high performance monochrome area CCD (charge-coupled device) image sensor with 1536H x 1024V photoactive pixels. It is designed for a wide range of image sensing applications in the 350 nm to 1000 nm wavelength band. Low dark current and good charge capacity result in 74 dB dynamic range at room temperature.

The sensor is built with a true two-phase CCD technology employing a transparent gate. This technology simplifies the support circuits that drive the sensor, reduces the dark current without compromising charge capacity, and significantly increases to optical response compared to traditional front illuminated full frame sensors. Optional microlenses focus the majority of the light through the transparent gate, increasing the optical response further. The photoactive area is 13.8 mm x 9.2 mm. The imager is housed in a 24 pin, 0.88” wide, dual in line package with 0.100” pin spacing.
