Jump to user comments
(CCD) A semiconductor technology used to build light-sensitive
electronic devices such as cameras and image scanners. Such
devices may detect either colour or black-and-white. Each CCD
chip consists of an array of light-sensitive photocells. The
photocell is sensitised by giving it an electrical charge
prior to exposure.
