Paper Abstract

Current tendencies in infrared arrays are to decrease the pitch and increase the number of detectors without degrading the electro-optical performances. It is therefore necessary to maximize the charge-handling capacity in the pixel. In this paper, a new architecture particularly-well suited to this kind of application is described. A brief review of classical readout circuits is given. The advantages and drawbacks of these architectures are emphasized. The new architecture is discussed in detail, compared to existing ones and the performance of the new readout circuit evaluated. Results measured on IRCMOS designed with the new architecture are presented.
