M116 Series

Overview

Our 300 / 600 dpi contact image sensors are available in sizes from 312 mm to 12 mm. The M116 series of modules are based on our dual resolution 300/600 dpi C116 silicon. The standard modules are 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

  • 300 dpi / 600 dpi selectable

  • 41.65 μm 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.
