The timing diagram below indicates a device with a single video output.  The device can be fully scanned in  2,630 clock cycles (38 inactive clock cycles plus 2,592 clock cycles) for the video signal. 

In the example below, some amount of overscan can be seen. Since this device uses a global shutter, the overscan period will expose the sensor elements for the next readout cycle.

The diagram below is the same device except that the user has selected 300 dpi resolution mode. In this case, it will require 38 + 1296 clock cycles to read the sensor fully.

A wide variety of illumination techniques and spectrum are available on all of our devices. Custom illumination available upon request.

 

 

Our 200 - 400 dpi contact image sensors come in a wide variety of designs and sizes from 304 mm to as small as 12 mm scanning length.   The M218 series of modules is based on our dual resolution 200/400 dpi C118 silicon.  Available in aluminum or plastic, 1 to 4 video outputs, the devices can be configured to meet your specific requirements.

  • 150 V/Lux-Sec @ 400 dpi
  • 300 V/Lux-Sec @ 200 dpi
  • 200 - 400dpi user selectable resolution
  • 62.5 µm pixel center to center spacing
  • On chip OP amp
  • Low fixed pattern noise
  • 5 V or 3.3 V power supply
  • 5 V or 3.3 V input signal interface

The timing diagram below indicates a device with three video outputs.  The device can be fully scanned in 1,190 clock cycles (38 inactive clock cycles plus 1152 clock cycles) to clock out the video. 

In the example below, some amount of overscan can be seen. Since this device uses a global shutter, the overscan period will expose the sensor elements for the next readout cycle.

A wide variety of illumination techniques and spectrum are available on all of our devices. Custom illumination available upon request.
