This paper describes a standardized high performance 320 by 256 readout integrated circuit for p-on-n detectors such as InSb, heterojunction HgCdTe, QWIP, and InGaAs. The array is intended to support a wide range of systems through flexibility and advanced modes of operation. The ISC9705 uses a flexible, programmable, multistage pipelined architecture to achieve a state-of-the-art ROIC suitable for applications ranging from hand-held IR viewers to high-speed industrial imaging systems. A simplified 'hands-off' default mode directly supports single output NTSSC or PAL operation. Using the programmable mode, the ISC9705 supports such advanced features as dynamic image transposition, dynamic windowing, multiple high-speed multiple output configurations, and signal 'skimming'. Both default and programmed modes support integrate-while-read and integrate- then-read snap shot operation, and variable gain.
