Contact Image Sensor Module

M106 Series

Overview

Our 200 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 M106 series of modules is based on our 8 dots per millimeter C106 silicon.  The modules have from 1 to 3 video outputs these devices can be configured to meet your specific design needs. 

Specifications:

  • 8 dots per millimeter - 200 dpi

  • 125 µm pixel center to center spacing

  • High sensitivity

  • Internal gain

  • 5 V power supply

  • Low power consumption

Timing

The timing diagram indicates a device with a single video output.  In the example below the device can be fully scanned in 1,728 clock cycles with a single video output.  SP or Start Pulse begins the scanout process.

The diagram below indicates a device with a total of 2,436 pixels and two video outputs. This device has a minimum integration time of 1,216 clock cycles.

M116 Series

Overview

Our 300 - 600 dpi contact image sensors are available in sizes from 216 mm to 24 mm. The M116 series of modules is based on our dual resolution 300/600 dpi C116 silicon.  Available in aluminum or plastic, 1 or 3 video outputs, the devices can be configured to meet your specific requirements.

Specifications:

  • High Speed: Up to 8 MHz pixel rate

  • Sensitivity: 50 - 400 V/Lux-Sec

  • 600 dpi resolution

  • 300 dpi / 600 dpi selectable

  • 41.65 mm pixel center-to-center spacing

  • On chip OP amplifier

  • Very low fixed pattern noise

  • Single 5 V or 3.3 V power supply

  • 5 V or 3.3 V input signal interface

Timing

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.

M118 Series

Overview

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.

Specifications:

  • 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

Timing

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.

M206 Series

Overview

Our M206 600 dpi contact image sensors are based on high speed double data rate C206 silicon. Available only in aluminum, these devices are designed to meet demanding commercial requirements. Dual LED illumination provides excellent signal needs for high speed applications.

Specifications:

  • High Speed: Up to 10 MHz pixel rate

  • Sensitivity: Up to 100V/Lux-Sec for 600 dpi

  • 344 x 1 image sensing elements

  • 600 dpi resolution

  • 42.3 mm pixel center-to-center spacing

  • On-chip timing and clock driver

  • On chip OP amplifier

  • Very low fixed pattern noise

  • Single 5 V or 3.3 V power supply

  • 3.3 V input signal interface

Timing

The C206 uses a double data rate where the video data is available on the raising and falling edges of the clock. This device requires 27 clock signals before video data is ready to be read.
