Paper Abstract

The RS-2D system is intended for various scientific applications, mainly for pulse image capturing. The intrinsic flexibility of CCDs is supported by fully programmable hardware and dedicated control software producing user-friendly, simple to use still powerful measurement device. The evolution of the system, inspired primarily by the need of various scientific experiments led us to a number of techniques and tricks which improve the reliability and precision of data. The RS-2D software is a combination of visualization and measurement tools, general readout control and some specific hardware-oriented procedures. As a result, the software can be used stand- alone just for image analyzing (and sometimes is), it can be adapted for various third-party readout systems (e.g. for Data Translation Frame grabber) but it gives more possibilities when used in RS-2D system. In this article we would also discuss parameters and measurement techniques for CCD readout systems.
