CCD Image Sensor With 111 Million Pixels

111-pixel CCD Image SensorFinally, a new CCD image sensor that breaks the 100-million pixel barrier has been created. This new image sensor was developed by the Semiconductor Technology Associates (STA) and manufactured by Dalsa Semiconductor in Quebec.

The CCD is a kind of image sensor typically used in digital cameras. This is a light-sensitive integrated circuit which stores and then displays image data after it converts each pixel into an electrical charge. This electrical charge is important as it's directly related to a certain color in the color spectrum.

This 4x4-inch charge-coupled device has a configuration of 10,560 x 10,560 pixels, making it the world's highest resolution image sensor.

The CCD image sensor was developed by STA for the U.S. Naval Observatory's Astrometry Department with funding from the Navy's Small Business Innovation Research program.
