Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the latest technologies for space and ground-based astronomy being pursued by Rockwell Scientific. The discussion covers the latest demonstrated performance of large format NIR (~1.7um cutoff) detectors mated to the HAWAII-2RG readout integrated circuit, our proven readout for large-format arrays for astronomy. Developmental work is presented on the HAWAII-4RG family (consisting of 4k x 4k, 4k x 8k, and 8k x 8k formats), RSC’s newest additions planned to the HAWAII series of astronomy readout integrated circuits. We also present the status of our multifunctional command-and-control ASIC for FPAs, which was first reported at the August 2002 SPIE.
