Camera electronics for the 72-channel


The S.A.O. Megacam focal plane will consist of 36 large CCDs (2K X 4.5K format), each with 2 output ports running at pixel rates up to 200 kHz. The unbinned data field is thus as large as 324 megawords and is presented at a sustained data rate during readout approaching 28 megabytes/sec. We have developed a simple camera controller to deal with the problem… (More)
