TSL201CL Linear Array Sensor

64 x 1, 200 DPI


The TSL201CL linear sensor array consists of a 64 × 1 array of photodiodes and associated charge amplifier circuitry. The pixels measure 120 μm (H) by 68 μm (W) with 125-μm center-to-center spacing and 57-μm spacing between pixels. Operation is simplified by internal control logic that requires only a serial-input (SI) signal and a clock.
