Abstract
The use of Linear and Quasi-Linear Time Delay and Integra-tion) CCD imagers has expanded greatly over the last decade. Applications have ranged from airborne reconnaissance, to facsimile, to automated mail-sack sorting. Early device performance was primarily set by what it was possible to fabricate, and systems were limited by the devices available. Subsequent detectors have been progressively more influenced by system-dominated performance requirements, which have determined many imager chip functional parameters, such as; pixel size, pixel number, number of TDI integrations, pixel/phase structure, saturation charge, readout rate, spectral window, and tailored optical admittance. This paper discusses some ways in which required system performance and device design rules interact to establish specifications for detector/array designs. Since unique system-specific device configurations are not cost-effective, general classes of systems may be established which bound the needs for a finite number of device designs. Examples are presented to illustrate performance/design relationships.
