Author Affiliations +
A high-speed video camera and recorder system is under development that will capture data at 2000 frames per second and store 2000 frames of data in solid-state digital memory. One possible configura-tion consists of a single unit camcorder that will measure approximately 6" x 6" x 12" and contain 128Mbytes of dynamic RAM and 64 flash A/D converters. Camcorder outputs include standard video and a digital port. To supply the high-speed data, a custom high-speed MOS imaging array prototype has been designed, fabricated, and tested. Preliminary tests of the 64 x 32 pixel device show imaging operation at more than 1000 frames per second. A 256 x 256 pixel array projected to achieve 2000 frames per second is under development.
