25 September 2012 Hyper Suprime-Cam: performance of the CCD readout electronics
Author Affiliations +
Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) employs 116 pieces of 2k×4k fully-depleted CCD with a total of 464 signal outputs to cover the 1.5 degrees diameter field of view. The readout electronics was designed to achieve ~5 e of the readout noise and 150000 e of the fullwell capacity with 20 seconds readout time. Although the image size exceeds 2G Bytes, the readout electronics supports the 10 seconds readout time for the entire CCDs continuously. All of the readout electronics and the CCDs have already been installed in the camera dewar. The camera has been built with equipment such as coolers and an ion pump. We report the readout performance of all channels of the electronics extracted from the recent test data.
