Paper Abstract

In this paper SCD's 17μm pitch large format VOx μ-Bolometer detector is introduced. In the first part the radiometric performance and the challenges involved in achieving the desired pixel sensitivity are discussed. We elaborate on the progress towards the performance design goal (< 50mK@F/1, 60Hz) utilizing various test structures and technology demonstration platforms. The combination of reduced pixel size and high-end thermal sensitivity can provide smaller light weight systems. In the second part the ROIC architecture options will be presented in depth. New capabilities and features are enabled by the advanced 0.18um VLSI technology. Explicitly, we address the contribution in terms of system flexibility, simplification and reduced power dissipation. Some vital tasks, such as coarse non-uniformity correction, are done internally thus facilitating the user interface.
