CCD sensor from Sarnoff Imaging Systems

Aimed at high-speed industrial, print web and x-ray inspection applications, Sarnoff Imaging Systems has released its 8k linear CCD sensors for stand-alone purchase. The company also plans to offer camera modules for companies that don't require a custom-built camera.

The front-illuminated CCD sensor features eight output ports, each running at speeds up to 19MHz and a 17kHz line rate. It incorporates an anti-blooming capability to drain excess charge from very intense illumination spots for full image clarity.

In addition, the high-performance line scan products offer high sensitivity from deep UV (193nm and 248nm) to the visible band (400nm to 700nm), and a dynamic range of greater than 1500:1 for a higher measurement range in each field of vision.

"By making the sensor products available, companies now have a low-cost option to optimise their defect inspection process. These sensors have high sensitivity in both the visible band and in the deep UV range, making them attractive for semiconductor inspection and metrology markets," said Steven Perna, general manager at Sarnoff Imaging Systems Business Unit, in a statement.
