This paper explores the noise characteristics of a 20 x 64 element cryo-SiCMOS multiplexed FPA readout of the switched MOSFET type over the temperature range 8-30 K. Both subtractive double sampling and correlated double sampling techniques were used to probe the multiplexer's output waveform during static and dynamic operation. The rms noise was observed to be a weak, decreasing function of temperature over the ranges 8-19 K and 24-30 K, while the apparent noise was excessively high in the region 19-24 K, owing to a device instability that is attributed to a fundamental property of silicon-based cryo-MOSFETs.
