Paper Abstract

Rapid development of large format InSb and HgCdTe FPAs and the recent availability of Si:As impurity band FPAs to the scientific community have driven the need for flexible high performance drive and readout electronics. Simultaneously, increasing economic pressure throughout the global research community has emphasized the need for design efficiency. The development of a new third-generation scaleable architecture utilizing PGAs, fiber optics, on- camera CPU, and distributed frame processing with VME system compatibility is discussed.
