Paper Abstract

A new IR detector/CCD multiplexer interfacing scheme is presented which utilizes an array of photocapacitive detectors coupled directly to a CCD multiplexer. The Direct Capacitive Coupling (DCC) input is potentially superior to conventional diode coupling schemes, i.e., direct injection or gate modulation, in terms of noise, anti-blooming characteristics and effective utilization of chip area. The DCC input is compatible with various background suppression techniques which have been developed for the diode coupling schemes. A detailed analysis of the performance of a DCC input is presented in this paper.
