Abstract : The signal regeneration stage of a charge-coupled device operating in a trailing bias charge mode is made to function without net delay of the signal. This is accomplished by means of a double pulse clock signal that first separates the signal from the trailing bias charge and then transfers the signal charge packet into an empty well of the following stage. Transfer efficiency in the device is achieved by means of an additional gate means to which either D.C. bias or the double pulse clock signal with D.C. offset is applied whereby modulation of the barrier potential under the gate means is reduced.
