Paper Abstract

Infrared focal plane array technology has matured in response to increasing performance demands, both at the device and system levels. Users of these devices are operating then at or very close to their theoretical signal and noise limits. Greater numbers of pixel channels not only force the development of readout multiplexers that can perform a variety of signal conditioning functions, but demand that these sophisticated operations be executed in an ever- diminishing silicon area. We discuss operational options available in today's detectors and readout multiplexers with an overview of some off-chip functions as well.
