A new technique for driving silicon-on-insulator pixel matrixes has been proposed in , which was based on transient charge pumping for evacuating the extra photo-generated charges from the body of the transistor. An 8×8 pixel matrix was designed and fabricated using the above technique. In this paper, the measurement set-up is described and the performance evaluation procedure is given, together with results of its implementation on the fabricated pixel matrix. The results show the applicability of the charge pumping technique and the effective operation of the image sensor. © 2010 by Department of Microelectronics & Computer Science, Technical University of Lodz.
