Paper Abstract

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is currently developing two imaging sensors using 800 x 800 charge coupled devices (CCD's) developed by Texas Instruments (TI). The Space Telescope Wide Field and Planetary Camera uses a three phase device. The original intent was to use the same device for the Project Galileo imaging system, however the radiation environment near Jupiter would have caused problems of both radiation damage and radiation induced noise with the three phase device. The availability of virtual phase technology provided a solution to the radiation problem. This paper compares the performance of the two different imagers and describes plans for further development of large scale virtual phase imagers.*
