Paper Abstract

We have developed a completely new type of general-purpose CCD data acquisition system which enables us to drive any kinds of CCD with any kinds of clocking modes. A CCD driver system widely used before is consisted of analog multiplexer (MPX), digital-to-analog converter (DAC), and operational amplifier. DAC is used to determine high and low voltage levels and MPX selects each voltage level using TTL clock. In this kind of driver board, it is difficult to reduce the noise caused by a short of high and low level in MPX and to select many kinds of different voltage levels.
