Paper Abstract

We have developed an engineering model of CCD chips and the analogue electronics for the Solid-state Slit Camera. To optimize its X-ray responsibility, we have also developed a flexible general-purpose CCD data acquisition system. We tested many kinds of clock patterns with different voltage levels. We report here our new CCD system and preliminary results of optimization of clock voltages.
