The Large Area Sensor (LAS) is a 1350 times1350 array of active pixels on a 40 Im pitch fabricated in a 0.35 im CMOS process. Stitching technology is employed to achieve an area of 5.4 cm times5.4 cm. The sensor includes 'regions of reset', whereby three different integration times can be set on the array to achieve a large imaging range for static scenes. Characterization of the noise performance included temporal and fixed pattern sources. LAS was found to have a read noise of 62 e-, a full… CONTINUE READING
