Why Is Binning Different In CMOS Image Sensors Compared To CCD Image Sensors?

Source: PCO-TECH Inc.

“Binning” is defined as the combination of the charge carrier content of two or more pixels of an image sensor to form a new so-called super pixel. This white paper discusses the reasons for the difference of “binning” in CMOS and CCD technologies and how it improves the signal-to-noise ratio.
