Germanium detectors are extensively used in astronomical instruments for far infrared observations. To meet the science objectives of future space projects, large-format far IR detectors are needed. As a first step toward this goal, we have fabricated a 2x16 Ge:Sb array with the 1x32, SB-190 CTIA cryogenic readout. The detector design as well as the preliminary results of our parametric tests are presented here. The array exhibits very good noise performance with an NEP as low as 4.0E-18 W/√Hz, and confirms the viability of the design for large format arrays.
