In answer to your question.
The more CCD’s the better. And the Bigger the better.
The camera I have, the 3 CCD’s are 1/3 inch. I have seen advertised in some high end expenive cams 1/2 inch and bigger.
Each of these chips processes a color. Red, Green Blue. Hence RGB.
If there was only one chip, it would have to do three times the work and not do as well.
Each of the CCD’s is speciallized for the specific color.
