Late-Breaking Results: Two-color 640 x 512 CMOS ROIC for SLS detectors
Speaker Biography: Brian Simolon received the B.S. degree in computer engineering from the University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, IN, in 2001 and the M.S. degree in electrical engineering from the University of California at Santa Barbara in 2004. He has been an integrated circuit (IC) design engineer at FLIR Systems since 2004. At FLIR he has designed mixed signal CMOS devices for infrared read out integrated circuits (ROICs) and read in integrated circuits (RIICs). He has worked on a wide variety of infrared ROICs including large and small format arrays, one and two-color arrays, and arrays for detectors operating at cryogenic temperatures. He has also designed arrays for microbolometers operating over large temperature ranges.

Summary: The ISC0905 is a 640 x 512, large format, two-color CMOS readout integrated circuit (ROIC) designed for strained-layer superlattice (SLS) detectors. The detector interface is supported through one input pad in each 30 micron pixel. One bit in the serial control word programs the chip to automatically adjust all biases and timing to allow for the integration of either electrons or holes. This feature allows users to easily operate this ROIC with a wide variety of p-on-n or n-on-p detectors. The ROIC has been specifically designed to allow for both polarities of detectors to be placed back-to-back and to connect to the ROIC through a single input pad to obtain a two-color image. The two-color image is achieved by switching the ROIC mode between the two colors on a per frame basis. This presentation will describe the interface, design and features of the ISC0905 ROIC as well as results of ROIC testing and FPA imaging.
