Sasson was to conduct a research answering whether or not it was possible to construct a camera using solid state electronics, solid state imagers, and an electronic sensor known as a charge coupled device (CCD) that gathers optical information

After literature research on digital imaging seemed fruitless, Sasson turned his interests to what’s already available. Consisting of an adapted analog to digital converter from a Motoral component, Kodak camera film les and the small CCD chip was introduced by Fairchild Semiconductor minor in 1973.
