  • Patent number: 9402042
    Abstract: A method for operating a focal plane array in a Time Delay Integration (TDI) mode, the method including: shifting a number of rows during TDI integration, wherein the number of rows shifted is less than a total number of rows of the focal plane array; and reading out a number of rows equal to the total number of rows of the focal plane array minus the number of rows shifted, leaving behind the partially-integrated rows.

  • Patent number: 8601254
    Abstract: A programmable system includes an input/output (I/O) pin that is configurable into multiple operational states. The programmable system further includes a memory device to store configuration data that, when provided to the I/O pin, causes the I/O pin to reconfigure into one of the operational states. When power is supplied to the system, the memory device is configured to provide the configuration data to the I/O pin prior to a system microcontroller becoming operational responsive to the power.

  • Patent number: 6396517
    Abstract: An integrated trigger function display system and methodology for trigger definition development in a signal measurement system having a graphical user interface. The system contemporaneously displays one or more trigger function names and an associated trigger function descriptor describing a trigger function identified by the associated trigger function name. The trigger name is displayed in a trigger name display region of a display window that concurrently displays a plurality of trigger function names. The descriptor is displayed in a trigger descriptor region of the display window so as to be visually-associated by the operator. A trigger definition is comprised of one or more trigger functions. Each trigger function is a graphical representation of an one or more underlying trigger primitives. A trigger primitive is a computer program statement that is translated into a form suitable for controlling the signal measurement system.
