Abstract
MegaCam is the new wide-field imaging camera currently being built for the new prime focus of the 3.6m Canada-France- Hawaii Telescope. Among all the challenges imposed by the ambitious specifications of MegaCam, there is the CCD Controller. We chose to realize a new highly integrated CCD Controller and to implement some other original solutions. This paper presents the solutions we retained.
