Paper Abstract

A system has been designed and built for developing the technique of Digital Correlated Double Sampling (DCDS) to eliminate reset noise in CCD camera systems. It allows a wide range of DCDS methods and algorithms to be tested and is based on the CCD203 from e2v technologies. The test system is described and sub-system noise characterisation test results are presented and compared with the theoretically expected performance. Furthermore, tests based on the weighted averaging of samples are described and results presented.
