22 July 2008 A DSP-based infrared and optical bidimensional detectors controller
Author Affiliations +
The Institute of Astronomy at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de México have developed and tested a CCD controller based on Texas Instruments Digital Signal Processor (DSP) TMS30C31@50MHz. Images are temporally stored in a 2MB static RAM attached to the DSP and transferred to the host computer running under Linux. Both tasks, acquisition and timing, are programmable so it can be conditioned to control any bidimensional detector. Analog voltage for bias, offsets and gains are fully programmable also. The system has been tested on an infrared Hawaii detector and fast Marconi 80x80 pixels CCD.
