This paper describes the design and operation of a low noise analogue readout system for X-ray CCDs (at up-to 1MHz pixel rate) for e2v's CCDs. A major part of the system is Correlated Double Sampler (CDS) Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) designed in collaboration with the CCLRC. Here we discuss the ASIC specification, design and applications, together with the measured performance.
