Abstract

An image sensor includes a substrate for forming a support structure; a plurality of photosensitive areas disposed in a cavity of the substrate so that a lip is formed enclosing at least a portion of the photosensitive areas; and a light-transmitting tape having an adhesive side removably attached to the lip and extending over the photosensitive area for permitting the photosensitive areas to receive light, for protecting the photosensitive areas from debris and for providing a efficient mechanism for removing the tape if desired.
