Paper Abstract

High frame rate CCD video cameras require high clock frequencies for running photocharge transport registers, especially when the sensor has only a single video port. It was found that some sensors of the interline transfer architecture allow for horizontal charge transport clock rates in excess of 75 MHz while still producing images of acceptable quality. We describe a relatively inexpensive method for analog-to-digital processing of video images at rates of 75 MSPS and 10-bit range. Images are stored in a fast, 512 X 512 X 12 kbit random access memory (RAM). Upon the data transfer into a processor, the public domain `NIH IMAGE' software is used for image analysis.
