Japanese term or phrase: 梨地状ノイズ
Raising the temperature of a CCD increases the dark current and thus this type of noise.

http://goo.ne.jp has plenty of hits for 梨地 in the "satin finish" sense, but nothing that seems to apply here.

Explanation:
A higher temperature means that more charge carriers have enough energy to cross the semiconductor band gap inside the CCD, irrespective of how much light is available.

This results in background noise in teh resulting image

The client, for once, responded to my query, giving "fixed pattern noise" as their preferred term, but your explanation is much more plausible.

Thanks, but all six hits refer to "satin finished" metal.

scattered white noises


Explanation:
As far as I'm aware, 梨地状 is used exclusievly for a certain type of metal surface finish, meaning satin-crepe treatment or something. I've struggled to coin a word but in vain. I'l like to see the actual thing.

Client says "fixed pattern noise"


Explanation:
Correction 梨地 means "satin finish surface" for metals--e.g., butcher knives, front panels on stereo sets, etc.

The problem searching for compound terms like 梨地状ノイズ on Google is that their parser splits the string up into four parts 梨, 地, 状, and ノイズ, and the search engine then looks for pages containing those "words" in any order.

Goo is only one step better, knowing that 梨地 is a single word.

It would help if I knew the reading, but RICHI, etc. don't appear in any dictionary that I've tried.
