This paper reports the development of a new CTIA ROIC (MT6425CA) suitable for SWIR InGaAs detector arrays. MT6425CA has a format of 640 x 512 with a pixel pitch of 25 mu m and has a system-on-chip architecture, where all the critical timing and biasing for this ROIC are generated by programmable blocks on-chip. MT6425CA is a highly configurable and flexible ROIC, where many of its features can be programmed through a 3-wire serial interface allowing on-the-fly configuration of many ROIC features. The ROIC runs on 3.3V supply voltage at nominal clock speed of 10 MHz clock. It performs snapshot operation both using Integrate-Then-Read (ITR) and Integrate-While-Read (IWR) modes. The CTIA type pixel input circuitry has a full-well-capacity (FWC) of about 320,000e-, with an input referred read noise of less than 110e- at 300K. MT6425CA has programmable number of outputs, where 4, 2, or 1 output can be selected along with an analog reference for pseudo-differential operation. The integration time can be programmed up to 1s in steps of 0.1 mu s. The gain and offset in the ROIC can be programmed to adjust the output offset and voltage swing. ROIC dissipates less than 130mW from a 3.3V supply at full speed and full frame size with 4 outputs, providing both low-power and low-noise operation. MT6425CA is fabricated using a modern mixed-signal CMOS process on 200mm CMOS wafers with a high yield above 75%, yielding more than 50 working parts per wafer. It has been silicon verified, and tested parts are available either in wafer and die levels with a complete documentation including test reports and wafer maps. A USB based camera electronics and camera development platform with software are available to help customers to evaluate the imaging performance of MT6425CA in a fast and efficient way.

SDIVA: Structural Delay Insensitivity Verification Analysis Method for Bit-Level Pipelined Systolic Arrays with Early Output Evaluation
Ismailoglu, A. Neshn; Askar, Murat (2008-09-05)
A structural delay-insensitivity verification analysis method, SDIVA, is proposed for asynchronous systolic arrays in dual-rail threshold logic style. The SDIVA method employs symbolic delays for all output evaluation paths and works at the behavioral specification level. For bit-level pipelined systolic arrvys, which have data-dependent early output evaluation in one-dimension, SDIVA method reduces the verification analysis task to examination of three adjacent systoles so that by analyzing all possible ea...
ACOUSTIC CROSSTALK REDUCTION METHOD FOR CMUT ARRAYS
Bayram, Barış; Kupnik, Mario; Khuri-Yakub, Butrus T. (2006-01-01)
This paper reports on the finite element analysis (FEA) of crosstalk in capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducer (CMUT) arrays. Finite element calculations using a commercial package (LS-DYNA) were performed for an immersed I-D CMUT array operating in the conventional and collapsed modes. LS-DYNA was used to model the crosstalk in CMUT arrays under specific voltage bias and excitation conditions, and such a modeling is well worth the effort for special-purpose CMUT arrays for ultrasound applications s...
