We provide a UK lead through the development of radiation-tolerant ASICs (Application-Specific Integrated Circuits​) designed specifically for science-grade CCD camera systems.  A new CCD video processing ASIC provides a preamplifier, correlated double sampler and 16-bit ADC all in one low-power chip.​​
