This paper describes the development of a large area monolithic array type MPPC and its package. The 16 channel 3×3mm elements are fabricated onto one die. A new buttable and non-magnetic type package was also developed for the monolithic array. Finally we describe the time resolution improvements by increasing the quenching resistor parallel capacitance.
