TSL210 Linear Array Sensor

640 x 1, 200 DPI


The TSL210 linear sensor array consists of five sections of 128 photodiodes, each with associated charge amplifier circuitry, running from a common clock. These sections can be connected to form a contiguous 640 × 1 pixel array. Device pixels measure 120 μm (H) by 70 μm (W) with 125-μm center-to-center pixel spacing. Operation is simplified by internal logic that requires only a serial input (SI1 through SI5) for each section and a common clock for the five sections.
