Paper Abstract

The four quadrant CCD was developed to meet the reliability needs of future space programs that use large area CCDs. The 10242 format was selected as a precursor to the 20482 format. An experimental lot of 10242 CCDs was made in 1987 and a production lot was run in 1988 for the AXAF star tracker program. Excellent performance was obtained with the production lot and the four quadrant operation was demonstrated to work as predicted.
