New 10K/15K resolution line scan image sensors enable higher throughput in optical inspection system
Updated: Feb 15
Our partner ams, a leading worldwide supplier of high-performance sensor solutions, launched the 4LS series a week ago, adding new faster and higher resolution line scan image sensors to its broad family of sensors for machine-vision applications. Use of cameras equipped with 4LS sensors will help operators of the latest smart factories to maintain the highest standards of quality control while increasing the volume of production output.
Offered in versions with 10K and 15K resolutions, the 4LS image sensors feature four Red/Green/Blue/Clear channels scanning at up to 120,000 lines per second. The 4LS series offers the system designer flexibility to meet various application requirements. Each of the four lines may be independently controlled and operated simultaneously for full-color image capture. Camera manufacturers can also implement 4:1 digital TDI (Time Delay and Integration) to achieve high image quality in low lighting conditions, or to perform high-speed object inspection. In addition, the sensors offer the choice of either an 8-bit or 12-bit LVDS output to provide the most appropriate trade-off between image quality and speed. Full well-charge options range from 10 ke- to 40 ke- to enable use in a wide range of illumination conditions.
