Developing an integrated system to acquire data from all ports of a CCD detector simultaneously in different light conditions with highest precision possible
Design an integrated system using NI PXI system with high noise rejecting and extended temperature capability using multiple units of simultaneously sampling High Speed Digitizers with external sampling clock.
CCD detectors are used in Satellites for Topographical analysis of the Earth’s surface. These are especially designed for aerospace applications and go through severe quality tests various stages before being flown. At the final stage of inspection, the CCD is tested on live data under different light conditions to test characteristics of each pixel of the CCD. The detector had 12000 pixels divided into 8 ports. Frequency of the video output is decided by front-end electronics. Radiometer, External Pulse Generator and DMM are external instruments used in this test.
