Paper Abstract

Third generation FPAs are being designed to incorporate numerous sophisticated 'smart' functions, useful in the preprocessing and filtering of real-time image data. Designers at Nova Research, Inc. have developed ROIC designs which have increased the capabilities of these devices in the are of signal and image processing. These new FPAs are more versatile than their predecessors through the implementation of a variety of programmable modes of operation. This paper will discuss a variety of such processing functions and modes. Design configurations for such FPAs sill be discussed with regard to the incorporation of general and specific signal processing functions. Such functions will include but not be limited to: edge enhancement and edge extraction, accommodating high and low signal flux environments, high speed windowing and foveated pixel arrangements.
