Abstract
We have developed an 801 by 512 element PtSi Schottky-barrier FPA with low-power multiphase CSD readout for a compact high performance infrared camera. The power consumption of this detector is about a half of the conventional IRCSD and the number of pixels is 1.5 times of that. The cryocooler is a high efficiency and compact size Stirling-cycle cooler that has also been developed for this imager at the same time. The cooling capacity is just match for the new IRCSD. This paper describes the basic imager design and features.
