PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To aim at an area expansion of a photoelectric conversion section by avoiding hindrance of condensing to the photoelectric conversion section by an interconnection in a CMOS image sensor of slanting pixel staggering arrangement.SOLUTION: A pixel 24 which consists of the photoelectric conversion section 23 and a plurality of transistors Tr1-Tr3 shifts aslant, and is arranged. Interconnections 14, 35, 11, and 12 prolonged horizontally and perpendicularly have slanting interconnects 14a, 35a, 11a, and 12a, and are formed aslant along the side of the photoelectric conversion section 23 in its adjoining region.
