Paper Abstract

In this paper we report on new developments associated with SCD VOx μ-Bolometer product line. Lately, we have introduced the BIRD6401,2, which is a high-sensitivity (< 50 mK @ F/1, 60Hz) VGA format detector with 25 μm pitch. In the first part we present new data extracted from extensive measurements. These measurements were conducted under various environmental and power constraints, exhibiting superior temporal sensitivity, long-term stability and operational flexibility. In the second part we describe the system implications of special features that were embedded within the FPA. Explicitly, we will address the benefits of some special features aimed at lowering the system power dissipation while maintaining low temporal and spatial NETD. Finally, in the last part we outline SCD's future roadmap and development directions. We will elaborate on our latest progress towards improved pixel sensitivity (25mK@F/1), advanced 0.18um ROIC technology, and the combination of the two towards smaller pitch (17 μm) arrays.
