An interface assembly for a sensor array is provided. The interface assembly may be made up of an integrated circuit package thermally coupled to the sensor array. The interface assembly may include a temperature control system for controlling the temperature of the sensor array. The temperature control system includes a temperature sensor for sensing a temperature variation of each sensor of the sensor array from an initial temperature beyond a predetermined threshold. A temperature controller is coupled to each temperature sensor and receives an output...
The invention claimed is: 1. A system comprising: a sensor array based on a given sensing modality; at least one integrated circuit for providing a desired signal conditioning to a plurality of analog signals from the sensor array, wherein the at least one integrated circuit is directly mounted on to the sensor array establishing thermal coupling there between; and at least one temperature sensor configured to sense temperature variation affecting the sensor array, the at least one temperature sensor disposed in a location selected from at least one of ...
