26 June 1996 FPA design methodologies at Santa Barbara Focalplane
Author Affiliations +
Modern focal plane arrays (FPAs) are being driven to lower cost, higher resolution, and more features. The complexity and requirements of such FPAs overwhelm traditional design approaches. An all encompassing design methodology that includes the requirements process, a tightly integrated test capability, an extensive modeling capability, and a detailed understanding of the foundry and FPA fabrication processes is required. Santa Barbara Focalplane's overall design methodology is presented as an approach to managing current and future FPA complexity.
