Since nothing is invented in a vacuum, a short history of integrated circuit technology relevant to the Charge-Coupled Device will be given.

Since nothing is invented in a vacuum, a short history of integrated circuit technology relevant to the Charge-Coupled Device (CCD) will be given. This will include events from the invention of the transistor through modern large scale integrated circuits. A description of the specific events leading to the invention of the CCD and its initial applications will be given. The later development of CMOS imaging technology will be compared to the CCD along with their current respective applications.
