Design and Implementation of a Flexible Interline CCD Pixel Binning Method
Pixel binning is a very important mechanism in CCD (Charge Coupled Device) image capture system. At the cost of resolution degradation, the readout speed and SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) are improved. A 3×2 pixel binning technique is reported in this paper and the driving timing sequences are presented. Compared to normal 2×2 pixel binning, this technique keeps a relative better SNR ,but in the same readout speed.
