Discussed is the design and development of an area CCD-based X-ray detector system that uses the first CCD imagers specially designed for macromolecular crystallography. The system is intended to produce the highest quality data for physically small crystals at synchrotron sources through the use of CCDs. The readout noise is 5 electrons rms at a 1 MHz pixel rate at the high responsivity setting.
