Abstract
The hardware emulator of the CCD sensor is described. It was initially designed for 'Pi of the Sky' project purposes, to speed-up the post-assembling test, but it can be easily adapted to other CCD-related hardware debugging needs. The 'Pi of the Sky' experiment searches for optical counterparts of gamma ray bursts from surface of the Earth. The CCD emulator accelerates the development procedure and simplifies post-assembly tests. Since CCD sensor is very fragile device, such emulator reduces risk connected with one handling during the final camera electronics tests and debugging.
