Paper Abstract

In certain test, measurement, and research applications of CCD TV systems, the greater accuracy than usual 8-bit frame-grabbers can provide is demanded without the system being too expensive. The paper presents the concept and features of the high-precision low-cost digital CCD TV system intended for obtaining 12-bit monochrome images of immobile or relatively slow moving objects. The increase in accuracy is achieved by the specific digitization procedure -- one column per frame, which combines the benefits of a slow A/D converter with real-time TV imaging compatibility. To reduce speed restrictions on sample- and-hold circuits, a zoomed pixel read out cycle, corresponding to the pixel to be digitized, is proposed. The system provides great flexibility in choice of integration times and readout rates by means of a programmable readout sequencer, and is easily adaptable to various user demands and CCDs types.
