"Hybrid array," when related to infrared mosaics, has a different meaning than the more widely accepted definition in electronic packaging. By "hybrid array" we mean the physical and electrical mating of a two-dimensional mosaic array of detectors to a multiplexer, with individual interconnects between each detector and the corresponding input to the multiplexer, to form a focal plane array (FPA). The detector mosaic is the sensing device while the multiplexer performs a self-scanning or readout function appropriate to either a staring or time-delay-and-integration (TDI) format. The integrated signal may be stored in the detector or the multiplexer.
