A small, low-power suite of fields and particles and imaging experiments is required for fulfilling the critical science objectives for a near-sun flyby mission. We discuss how an integrated instrument suite using novel sensors and advanced detector/microelectronics/packaging techniques can be implemented for such a payload. Critical tradeoffs between science requirements, measurement strategies and these resource limits are discussed, and critical enabling components are identified. The instrument site consists of 6 major investigations, some with multiple sensors, power conditioners for both high and low voltages and a common DPU. The concept design is essentially a dress-rehearsal of how a payload could realistically make the measurements needed to answer the critical science questions while operating within a real-world physics, engineering and technology context.
