Many real-time signal-processing applications found in image-processing fields require high computational throughput rate and serial. data storage capacity. Digital charge-coupled device CCD)( memories offer a potential solution to many of these applications. This paper discusses the major features that make CCDs attractive for high-volume serial storage requirements. 'Texas Instruments 64K CCD memory is described as an example to highlight architectural considerations and design tradeoffs. Projections for CCD memories are given with regard to cell structure and size, limits of packaging density, Inemory size, performance, and cost. Several digital CCD memory efforts in image processing are discussed and reviewed.
