A single-chip CCD image sensor captures >100 successive images at >1 Mframes/s. The pixel count of the test chip is 312/spl times/260 (=81,120) pixels. Charge handling capacity is 40 k electrons. Grey levels are 10 b. Fill factor is 13%. An on-chip overwriting mechanism makes possible continuous recording of the latest image signals, draining the old ones to the substrate.
