High-Speed 4-Array 2K-Pixel Linear Image Sensor (C800)

C800 consists of four independently operable arrays with Blue (450 nm), Green (550 nm), Red (650 nm), and Near Infrared (NIR, 900 nm) filter of 2,024 imaging sensor pixels. The pixel size is 14 μm x 14 um for high dynamic range and high sensitivity to visible and near infrared (NIR) spectral band ranging from 450 to 1000 nm wavelength. It is specially designed for very high speed industrial detection, including color and shape sorting.


Besides packaged in a 48 pin DIP (dual-in-line-package), CMOS Sensor Inc. offers COB (Chip-on-Board) service for better optical performance. Camera solution ODM/OEM is also available.
