ISOCAM is one of the science instruments in the Infrared Space Observatory. It is a 2-channel I.R. Astro-nomical Imager intented to observe at very low flux levels, thanks to the use of a liquid helium cooled telescope. This paper describes the Focal Plane Assembly design of the short wavelength channel. The operation of a 32x32 1nSb CID-SAT arra detector has been demonstrated. The problems encountered in the design of the cooled electronics and theyomponent selectionprocess are discussed in the light of specific ISO constraints, such as thermal control and radiation shielding.
