TSL1412S Linear Array Sensor

1536 x 1, with hold 400 DPI


The TSL1412S linear sensor array consists of 2 sections of 768 photodiodes, each with associated charge amplifier circuitry, aligned to form a contiguous 1536 × 1 pixel array. The device incorporates a pixel data-hold function that provides simultaneous-integration start and stop times for all pixels. The pixels measure 63.5 µm by 55.5 µm with 63.5-µm center-to-center spacing and 8-µm spacing between pixels. Operation is simplified by internal logic that requires only a serial-input (SI) pulse and a clock.
