Paper Abstract

The Reionization And Transients Infra-Red camera has been built for rapid Gamma-Ray Burst followup and will provide simultaneous optical and infrared photometric capabilities. The infrared portion of this camera incorporates two Teledyne HgCdTe HAWAII-2RG detectors, controlled by Teledyne’s SIDECAR ASICs. While other ground-based systems have used the SIDECAR before, this system also utilizes Teledyne’s JADE2 interface card and IDE development environment. Together, this setup comprises Teledyne’s Development Kit, which is a bundled solution that can be efficiently integrated into future ground-based systems. In this presentation, we characterize the system’s read noise, dark current, and conversion gain.
