The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) is the flagship US ground-based optical astronomy facility for the next decade. At the heart of its 3Gpixel camera are the 21 focal plane modules, each of which is a fully autonomous and serviceable unit comprised of 9 CCDs and 144 channels of low-noise processing electronics. To minimize noise, power, and beam obscuration the electronics is...

We explore the concept of using deep-submicron HV-CMOS and/or imaging processes to produce a drop-in replacement for radiation-hard silicon sensors. Such active sensors contain simple circuits, e.g. amplifiers and discriminators, but still require a readout chip. This approach yields most advantages of MAPS, without the complication of full integration on a single chip. After outlining the...
