The TK1024 four quadrant readout imager has been in production for several years and has evolved into a device with a high level of performance. Current production volumes are several hundred wafer starts per year (4 devices per wafer). In the last year improvements have been made in dark current with the addition of MPP unpiants and the reduction of MOSFET read noise. The paper presented at last year''s symposium focused on general performance data (SPIE vol. 1447 pgs 298 - 309 ). This paper will discuss specific test data recently observed on devices fabricated with the current process. Data on read noise conversion gain and dark current versus temperature in both non-MPP and MPP modes will be the emphasis of this paper. In addition information wifi be presented on Full Well versus operating voltages and optimal timing for MPP operation in the typical slow scan (50 kilopixels/sec) readout mode. 1.
