MASDA-X1.jpg The MASDA-X is a 128 channel readout chip intended for peripheral attachment to a Megapixel amorphous silicon active pixel array. The chip accepts a + or - polarity input signal and has an 8 bit programmable charge transfer gain to accommodate a wide variety of input signals. Each channel has a sample and hold with DCS. The chip has a programmable bandwidth time constant from <.5 µs to >5 µs to allow for S/N optimization. The analog outputs are multiplexed either 16:1 or 64:1 to a 16 bit ADC. The chip has very low noise and is pipelined to avoid dead time in the image signal acquisition
