Pinned Photodiode must have the heavily doped channel stops nearby
and also completely buried signal charge collection and storage N region.

In 1975, Sony proposed the Pinned surface PNP and PNPN junction type
dynamic phototransistor with the in pixel vertical overflow drain (VOD)
function for light detecting devices.

In 1978, Sony introduced one chip FT CCD image sensor with the Pinned
surface PNP junction type dynamic phototransistor which then became
the primary photodetector for CCD image sensors.

In 1984 Kodak called the Sony original Pinned surface PNP junction type
dynamic phototransistor simply as Pinnned Photodiode.

In 1987, Sony introduced a 2/3 inch, 380,000-pixel CCD image sensor
(ICX022) with the Pinned surface NPNP junction type dynamic Photo
Thryristor with VOD function which Sony then called simply as Hole
Accumulation Diode (HAD).

In the 1990s, the era of passport size video cameras demands compact
CCD image sensors with large numbers of pixels (1/2 inch or smaller
with 400,000 pixels or more).

In 1995, Kodak adopted Pinned Photodiode for CMOS image sensors.

Pinned Photodiodes, since invention by Sony in 1975, are still
the primary photodetector for CCD and CMOS image sensors now.
