This paper presents background and measured performance data on a novel, low cost, high performance readout integrated circuit (ROIC) for microbolometer uncooled detector applications. The array is designed to offer better than 80mK NEdT performance using f/1.8 optics. The design incorporates advanced on-ROIC signal processing electronics that allow bolometer element non-uniformity control over a wide range of ROIC substrate temperatures. The small format array is ideally suited for high volume low-cost production applications.
