What is CCD (Charge Coupled Device)?
A CCD is a light-sensitive integrated circuit. It stores colour information for every pixel as electric charge, whose intensity depends upon the position of the colour in the colour spectrum. The charge for each pixel is read at one corner of the sensor and converted from analogue to digital. CCDs are used in digital cameras as sensors because they are extremely sensitive to colour variations and create low noise.
