Abstract
Demand for high frame rate operations using precision slow scan CCD cameras increases. In an overview, different commonly used readout techniques are described. CCD timing is then analyzed in order to find the most limiting factors for high frame rates. Different approaches to clocking and their impact on frame timing are discussed and compared. Parameters such as sub-array dimensions, parallel shift times, and pixel read rate are compared and the tradeoffs are discussed. Finally some approaches are shown for reading sub-arrays with frame rates higher than 300 frames per second.
