Paper Abstract

A prototype solid-state multi-chip-module (MCM) optical sensor circuit is described. The MCM is designed to sample the optical signals from a fiber-optic array at rates up to 200 MHz. The fiber-optic inputs interface to the MCM avalanche-photodiode (APD) sensor array. The prototype 40 pixel MCM stores approximately 1000 samples from each fiber before readout. This is done on the MCM using high-speed charge-injection input CCD delay line ICs. The MCM is designed to be cooled to 0 degrees C. This stabilizes the APD gain and minimizes dark current generation in the APD and the CCD delay line.
