Mathematical Tools To Speedup and Improve Analyses
- Shotnoise transfer curve, first proposed by Janesick (Optical Engineering
1987) . Recently adapted to extract the relation
between the number of carriers in the pixel versus output code. Helps in
determining linearity, digitization errors caused by ADC, LVDS interconnect
errors. The algorithm is based on grabbing a sequence of 3 images.
- FFT as a simple means to measure the noise. One does not need an Rhode&Swartz
apparatus just an oscilloscope, which often is available in the labo, is
- FFT as a simple means to measure MTF. Using either a tilted SLIT, block
frequency sweep, sine frequency sweep. Even a leaking pixel as Dirac impulse
can be used.
- 2-dimensional histogram to analyze dependencies (e.g. temperature,
voltage supply of the pixel) on a pixel-by-pixel basis. The method
on grabbing two images: one before and the other after the single event
experiment. The pixel amplitude is used as coordinate on the x-axis (image
before) and on the y-axis (image after) with pixel position as parameter.
Specially the binarized version is very powerful.
- Application of transmission line theory to calculate clock distribution
for CCD imagers. It is a simple and powerful tool and can be done in
closed form. In combination with a Network analyzer one can judge the edges
of performance without even having to build a full application.
