The 640 X 480 MOS multiplexer developed for PtSi MWIR focal plane arrays has been adapted to LWIR operation. The multiplexer is very flexible and can be used in various operating modes. The MOS approach, with its high saturation capacity and low-temperature operating capability, is ideally suited for long-wavelength operation. In this paper applications of the multiplexer to IrSi Schottky detectors and SiGe heterojunction detectors are discussed.
