Charge-to-digital conversion offers advantages over conventional charge readout techniques because it performs digitization directly in the charge domain. The approach consolidates hardware, reduces power and weight, and eliminates many sources of noise and nonlinearity. This paper introduces an architecture for a charge-to-digital converter (CDC) that is tailored toward a charge-coupled device (CCD) implementation. New methods of generating charge, sensing charge, and comparing charge packetsdoi:10.1109/4.545815 fatcat:czp4l3txazgcdgqo3eazlnsflu
