Abstract:

A CCD buffer apparatus utilizing a minimally capacitive-loading charge sensing transistor to couple the output from a CCD unit to a constant current source differential amplifier unit. The gain of the differential stage is enhanced by a mirror image MOS enhancement FET pair in the collector circuit of the differential stage. A feedback loop is utilized in the output of the buffer apparatus to aid in signal tracking between the input and the output. Author
