CCD cameras are used in more applications in more fields today than in the past. As the areas of application change, so do the camera requirements. One area that has received a lot of attention lately is the pixel readout speed. So called 'slow scan' CCD cameras are achieving pixel rates that approach those of RS-170 video. Faster readout rates require major modifications to the circuits that are common in slower CCD camera systems. In this paper, we discuss some of the design implications of higher frame rate CCD cameras and methods used to improve performance at these higher rates.
