Abstract : A charge coupled device gate electrode bus driving arrangement which uses the properties of an electrical transmission line to achieve higher impedance, essentially reactive free, loading of the bus driver circuit is disclosed. The described arrangement includes the addition of inductance elements, resistive terminations, constant gate capacitance compensation, and delay line considered placement of the CCD cells to the usual CCD configuration; the disclosure includes numeric examples of the impedances and delay times achieved.
