This paper describes the development and performance demonstration of two charge-coupled device (CCD) chips for image processing. The aim of the work is to demonstrate the feasibility of developing custom CCD architectures that will enable the time-consuming, low-level processing functions (such as feature extraction) to be performed in real time. We describe the circuit concepts and device layout for six commonly used algorithms and include photographs of the raw and processed imagery.
