Paper Abstract

The advent of mosaic focal planes, with their accompanying complexity, demands a clear delineation and a wide perspective of architectural levels for the optimum design and integration of focal planes. This overview describes the important characteristics of the various architectural levels, pinpoints the main constraints on focal plane architecture, and highlights the major issues and trends in focal plane technology.
