Silicon Readout Integrated Circuits (ROIC) for HgCdTe Focal Plane Arrays of 1x4 and 72x4 photovoltaic detectors are represented. The analog circuit blocks are completely identical for both, while the digital control circuit is modified to take into account the larger array size. The manufacturing technology is 0.35μm, double poly-Si, three-metal CMOS process. ROIC structure includes four elements TDI functioning with a super sampling rate of 3, bidirectional scanning, dead pixel de-selection, automatic gain adjustment in response to pixel deselection besides programmable four gain setting (up to 2.58pC storage), and programmable integration time. ROIC has four outputs with a dynamic range of 2.8V (from 1.2V to 4V) for an output load of 10pF capacitive in parallel with 1MΩ resistance, and operates at a clock frequency of 5 MHz. The input referred noise is less than 1037 μV with 460 fF integration capacitor, corresponding to 2978 electrons.
