Diffuse Correlation Spectroscopy (DCS) is based on the temporal correlations of the speckle pattern from the light that has diffused through a biological media. Measurements must be made on a small coherence area of the size of a speckle grain. Summing independent measurement increases the SNR as the square root of the number of detectors. We present a bi-dimensionnal pixel CMOS detector array specially designed for this task, with parallel in-pixel demodulation and temporal correlations computation. Optical signals can be processed at a rate higher than 10,000 samples per second with demodulation frequencies in the MHz range.
