Paper Abstract

This paper describes a standardized high performance 640 by 512 readout integrated circuit (ROIC) for p-on-n detectors such as InSb, Heterojunction HgCdTe, QWIP, and InGaAs. The array is intended to support a wide range of system through flexibility and advanced modes of operation. The ISC9803 uses a flexible, programmable, multistage pipelined architecture to achieve a state-of-the-art ROIC suitable for applications ranging from hand-held IR viewers to high-speed industrial imaging system. A simplified default mode directly supports single output NTSC or PAL operation. Using the programmable mode, the ISC9803 supports such advanced features as dynamic image transportation, dynamic windowing, multiple high-speed multi tout configurations, and signal 'skimming'. Both default and programmed modes support integrate-while-read and integrate-then-read snapshot operation, and variable gain. This array is part of the Indigo Systems family of standard ROICs that use a common architecture and electrical interface.
