Paper Abstract

We have found a commercially-available ethernet interface module with sufficient on-board resources to largely handle all timing generation tasks required by digital imaging systems found in astronomy. In addition to providing a high-bandwidth ethernet interface to the controller, it can largely replace the need for special-purpose timing circuitry. Examples for use with both CCD and CMOS imagers are provided.
