Multichannel high speed arrays incorporating amplifiers and signal processors within a single package (flat pack or modular side wall) are available from MERET. Ranging from quadrant modules to 2 x 16 matrix formats, these systems are designed for high speed (less than 10 ns rise/fall time), large active area per element (80 mils on a side typically for the 16-element arrays), and fine resolution (less than 5 mil separation between elements). Responsivity of better than 4 mV/ μW consistent with NEP on the order of 5 nW is easily achievable on a low cost system.
