The design and performance of a third generation 640(H) X 480(V) PtSi focal plane array is presented. The 3 to 5 micron MWIR focal plane array supports interlaced, progressive scan, and subframe readout under control of on-chip digital decoders. The new design utilizes 1.25 micrometers design rules to achieve a 50% fill-factor, a noise equivalent delta temperature of <0.07 C (f/1.5, 30 Hz, 300 K), and a saturation level >1.5 X 106e. The power dissipation is less than 110 mW.
