Paper Abstract

Nine years ago I gave a paper here summarizing the State-of-the-Art in two dimensional mosaic arrays. The standards were monolithic CCD and CID Silicon and InSb technologies; what is now called "Z" technology had just emerged. Since then the primary contenders have been planar hybrids and the "Z" configurations. In my opinion, costs of "Z" technology have come down to the point where these configurations will dominate. The future holds dramic growth in on-focal plane signal processing, ultilimately emulating, and perhaps surpassing, that of the eye and brain.
