Having done the SC
modification for a Logitech QC Pro 3000 I was eager to make a cooled cam.
From experience with the Logitech I felt that removing the CCD must be
easier with a Philips ToUCam Pro which has almost the same components but
the CCD is soldered upon the PCB and therefore easier to be removed - and
there has to be a new challenge as well ;-)
Design considerations were Peltier cooling, AmpOff, attachable to
eyepiece and my CANON SLR lenses.
You will find my thoughts, findings and achievements on
the following pages. I hope that it may inspire some readers to take this
step - feel free to comment but in the first place have fun with our
