AbstractApparatus for identifying a plurality of given elements read out of an array of elements arranged in lines and columns is described. The apparatus includes a line-rate counter for developing addressing signals and a memory for providing data signals corresponding to the column location of the given elements in response to the addressing signals. A programmable counter counts columns in response to the data signals read out of the memory for providing a signal which corresponds in time to read out of respective ones of the plurality of given elements.
