Imaging Processor

The ADCDS-1603 imaging signal processor combines true 16-bit resolution with 3-mpps performance for electronic imaging applications using charge-coupled-device photodetectors.

The processor has a signal-to-noise ratio is 85 dB at 3 MHz with no latency delay. Features of the fully integrated 40-pin TDIP package include a user-configurable input amplifier, correlated double sampler, 16-bit sampling analog-to-digital converter, edge triggering, gain adjust, offset adjust, 20-V reference, and a programmable analog bandwidth function. Overall power consumption is 500 mW. The ADCDS has a high-speed, high-accuracy CDS circuit that eliminates the effects of residual charge, charge injection, and kT/C noise on the output capacitor of the CCD.
