Paper Abstract

A simple and robust method for expanding the dynamic range of the readout circuits for uncooled microbolometer infrared sensor arrays is presented. The proposed method allows a reduction in the number of bits required for microbolometer nonuniformity compensation, significantly reducing the complexity of the pre-integration compensation circuity.
