Overview and History of the Fast CCD Detectors

At a SPIE Conference in 2005 (International Society for Optical Engineering) Howard Padmore gave talk called "Fast CCD-Based systems for detection of x-ray and electronics" based on custom CCDs designed at LBNL. Steve Ross attended the talk and meet with Howard after the presentation and discussed the possibility of collaborating with LBNL in the development and fabrication of a x-ray detectors based on these fast readout CCD chips. During meetings held in October and December of 2005 it was decided that LBNL and APS would work together to develop these x-ray detectors. The first detector, now in use, is called the 480 Fast CCD Detector. The second generation detector, currently under development, uses a 1920 x 960 CCD developed by LBNL. It can be operated as a 960 x 960 frame shift Fast CCD. The first and second generation Fast CCD sensors, developed at LBNL, are based on 10 columns per output. The third generation Fast CCD will have a fully column parallel readout, where each column has their own output.
