TSL208R Linear Array Sensor

512 x 1, 200 DPI


The TSL208R linear sensor array consists of a 512 × 1 array of photodiodes and associated charge amplifier circuitry. The pixels measure 120 μm (H) by 70 μm (W) with 125-μm center-to-center spacing and 55-μm spacing between pixels. Operation is simplified by internal control logic that requires only a serial-input (SI) signal and a clock.
