  • CCD Test Methods
    will be given for performing these tests yourself. It is recommended that you familiarize yourself with the other subjects in CCD University before reviewing the subject of testing. These tests are important indicators of camera quality and they fulfill the commitment we have to our customers
  • Guide to CCD-based Imaging Colorimeters
    Selecting the right CCD-based imaging colorimeter for an inspection application requires understanding a few basic trade-offs in imaging colorimeter architecture. Proper selection of CCD, control electronics, filter, and lenses will help to ensure the optimal camera for a particular measurement
  • Moisture Ingress and Absorption in a CCD Package
    Moisture ingress in electronic packages can lead to catastrophic failures due to electromigration and corrosion. For space application, epoxy sealed CCDs are used, and the risk due to moisture ingress during test and storage rarely assessed. This article proposes a methodology to quantify
  • View to the Future: CCD and CMOS Sensors Today and Tomorrow
    Digital image sensors are well established in private and professional applications. But which sensor type works best, CCD or CMOS? This question enlightens passionate discussions. A more detailed analysis reveals that these sensors share many common characteristics. Both CMOS and CCD can
  • Application Note: AAT3190 Positive/Negative Bias Supply for CCD Camera Sensors
    Typical CCD camera sensors require a positive and negative bias voltage of +15V and -8V, respectively, at load currents up to 10mA. This application requires good output regulation for these bias supply voltages. In addition, CCD camera sensors are noise sensitive and require very low input
  • CCD Technology
    The "CURE" for the Common Triangulation Laser.
  • Technology Developments Take CCD Imaging Colorimetry Out of the Lab and Onto the Factory Floor
    are thin and customer expectations high, many manufacturers are discovering a competitive advantage in imaging colorimetry systems. Once almost exclusively the realm of R&D labs, these specialized CCD-based systems combine the benefits of automation - speed, flexibility, and repeatability
  • Resolution and Dynamic Range: How These Critical CCD Specifications Impact Imaging System Performance
    Resolution and dynamic range are two important specifications to be considered when evaluating the capabilities of an imaging colorimeter, yet they are easily misconstrued. The common assumption is that the higher the camera resolution, the higher the dynamic range, the better the image quality. Why

    During the past decade, the primary goal of CCD manufacturers has been to develop de- vices to replace vidicon tubes in commercial and home video cameras.
  • Scientific Detectors for Astronomy
    Recent interest in volume production for the proposed Supernova/Acceleration Probe (SNAP) space- based imager has led us to begin a technology transfer effort with a commercial CCD manufacturer .
  • Electronic Imaging in Astronomy
    CCD manufacturers provide a data sheet which gives the electrical pin connection diagram for the device (Figure 8.1), the names and symbols for each pin, the voltages or range of voltages to be applied to each pin, and the timing diagram …
  • Scientific detectors for astronomy 2005
    The size of a device is limited by wafer size (~6 in. is typical for specialist CCD manufacturers ), lithography, and yield.
  • Sandbox CCDs
    Recent dark current tests show that dark levels vary widely for CCD manufacturers from 60 pA/cm2 to 10 nA/cm2 for noninverted CCDs (unless otherwise specified dark current figures in this paper are referenced to room temperature operation).
