Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in machine vision technology, is pleased to announce that its newest charge-domain CMOS TDI camera–the Linea HS─is in volume production. Based on a multi-array TDI sensor architecture, the 16k camera offers 300 kHz line rate or 5 GPix/sec data throughput for high-performance imaging applications such as flat panel display, PCB and wafer inspection, gene sequencing, digital pathology, and web inspection.
The Linea HS family offers versatile capabilities for monochrome/HDR, multifield™, and super resolution imaging in light-starved conditions. For the monochrome model, the sensor has two arrays. The main array has 128 stages, while the secondary array has 64 stages. The sensor offers the best detectability, with a much lower noise equivalent exposure, and improved MTF when compared with existing CCD TDI devices. New features such as active pixel-assisted alignment helps end-users to precisely align samples under inspection.
“Multi-array TDI technology provides cutting-edge performance for today’s demanding vision applications. Various selectable stage combinations of both arrays enable best imaging results to meet different application requirements,” said Xing-Fei He, Senior Product Manager.
Combined with the Xtium™2 CLHS series of high-performance frame grabbers from Teledyne DALSA, these new products represent a breakthrough in data throughput in the industry. Built on field-proven technology, the next generation CLHS fiber optic interface provides reliable and high throughput data transmission. Fiber optic cables lower system costs, offer longer cable lengths (up to 300 m), are immune to electromagnetic radiation, and are ideal for industrial environments. Teledyne DALSA’s Xtium2 family of high-performance frame grabbers feature the PCI Express Gen 3 x8 platform.
