VLQC circuit

Posted on Feb 5, 2014

VLQC is a quenching circuit designed in our laboratories to perfectly suit the constraints of an array, i. e. high compactness, cross-talk avoidance and low afterpulsing. In VLQC a single transistor performs the sensing, quenching and reset tasks drastically reducing the overall detector parasitic capacitance and thus system power consumption, pixel-to-pixel optical
