The first portion of this thesis is an overview of some of the various methods for obtaining wide bandwidth data collection on microcomputer development systems. The second portion of the thesis will focus on the use of charge-transfer devices (CTD) to provide a method of contiguous data sampling. The current high speed data acquisition equipment requires the waveform to be repetitive. The method of data collection discussed in this paper possesses the ability to capture single events in time. Another topic discussed will be the different types of distortions encountered in the CTD's, and possible means for correction of these errors in both hardware and software. The conclusion of the thesis covers the difficulties that were encountered in the hardware implementation of both the low speed and high speed version of this type of collection system.
