Soundca.... wha?! (Ok, I shouldn't be rude, this is why Google wasn't
any help earlier.)
Nope. Logic levels. High/Low. Perhaps it's my fault for not
explaining precisely what I'm at.
We have an IR detector (roughly equiv. to a CCD), controlled by 6 clock
lines. In order to read out/reset/skip rows/whatever, we need to feed
those switches with the right the sequence. The grunt work is all
handled by a controller - we just load the right tables and poke the DSP
to get going. It then eats one state every 50 nsecs.
So, everything is fine, and all of the above actually works. But this
is a camera for astronomy, and performance is insanely important. Once
we take delivery, we'll remove the POS detector we let them have for
testing, put in The Real One, and start tuning it up to 11. That's what
I don't want to be doing by hand.
