      A relatively new type of component, the CTD (Charge Transfer Device) is now available to the commercial market. After five years in the development lab, these parts are finding their way into many applications including telecommunications. This paper will give a brief overview of the device theory and discuss three particular devices: 1) a transversal filter, 2) a Binary Analog Correlator, and 3) chirped transversal filter used to implement a Discrete Fourier Transform.
