Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHODS FOR REDUCING NOISE IN AN OPTOELECTRONIC DEVICE
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE DESTINES A REDUIRE LE BRUIT DANS UN DISPOSITIF OPTO-ELECTRONIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) In various embodiments, a telescope comprises a telescope body, telescope optics, a two-dimensional sensor array, and power supply circuitry. The power supply circuitry comprises a switching power supply configured to provide power to the two-dimensional sensor array and sensing circuitry. During at least a portion of data acquisition, the switching power supply is shut off and the two-dimensional sensor array is powered by a non-switching power source, thereby reducing noise.
(FR) Dans divers modes de réalisation, un télescope comprend un corps de télescope, des optiques de télescope, un réseau de capteur bidimensionnel et un circuit d'alimentation de puissance. Le circuit d'alimentation de puissance comprend une alimentation à découpage conçue de manière à fournir de la puissance au réseau de capteur bidimensionnel et au circuit de détection. Durant au moins une partie de l'acquisition des données, l'alimentation à découpage est mise hors tension et le réseau de capteur bidimensionnel est alimenté par une source d'alimentation sans découpage, réduisant ainsi le bruit.
