TSL3301 Linear Array Sensor

102 x 1, with ADC 300 DPI


The TSL3301−CL is a high-sensitivity 300-dpi, linear optical sensor array with integrated 8-bit analog-to-digital converters. The array consists of 102 pixels, each measuring 85 μm (H) by 77 μm (W) and spaced on 85 μm centers. Associated with each pixel is a charge integrator/amplifier and sample-hold circuit. All pixels have concurrent integration periods and sampling times. The array is split into three 34-pixel zones, with each zone having programmable gain and offset levels. Data communication is accomplished through a three-wire serial interface.
