This diploma thesis presents the concept of controling and reading the data out of the linear image sensor CCD. The entire project includes both the design and the manufacture hardware driver for a CCD sensor based on the microcontroller SAM3S4 as well as the development of a software for sensor control. The goal of the project is to detect the light spectrum of various light sources, to process the acquired data in the program for making graphs and display them on a computer screen.
The project covers the design and production of a control circuit for the selected image sensor, the proper choice of components and the production of a printed circuit board, which includes the development of electrical schemes and drawing of the printed circuit board. In order to accomplish the originally designed idea there must be developed a software solution, that enables controlling the image sensor CCD and reading the obtained data from already mentioned sensor CCD. This work also describes used measuring environment for application testing.
This thesis also lists the complications that occurred during the development of the software and the changes to the original design plan.
The results obtained with described solution are presented at the end of the diploma thesis
