Paper Abstract

A monolithic PtSi charge coupled device (CCD) focal plane array (FPA) has been developed. The array contains 656 X 492 pixels with 46% fill-factor and 26.5 micrometers square pitch. A single on-chip amplifier is used to read out the video at 12.5 MHz to provide standard 30 frames per second format. The devices are produced in Loral Fairchild's CCD facility in Milpitas, California. Excellent performance and yield have been achieved from initial wafers. Device design and performance test results are described.
