SC073: Low Noise CCD Electronics
Charge Coupled Devices (CCDs) are the main imaging element in a variety of scientific and commercial applications. The interaction between the CCD and electronics is to achieve a quality image characterized by low-noise and low-smear, and meet frame-rate and linearity specifications. This course presents practical circuit applications and components, accompanied by appropriate theory, so the attendee has the tools to begin the electrical design of a working CCD imaging system. The course emphasizes standard design practice: understand the problem, propose a design, analyze the design using an appropriate math tool, then prototype, test and verify.
