The potential advantages of using CCD or other matched filtering devices to achieve rapid pseudonoise (PN) signal acquisition is well known. This paper presents performance analysis of two major algorithms using CCD PN matched filters. It is shown that in a large uncertainty range and low chip signal-to-noise ratio (E//c/N//O) environment, parallel-serial search is superior to serial-parallel search through this advantage dwindles as E//c/N//O increases. On the other hand, parallel search is a more favorable choice if the uncertainty range is small.
