General Description

Dragster is a digital line-scan sensor using two types of basic elements: a single line element with 7µm x 7µm and 3.5µm x 3.5µm pixel size, and a dual line element with mono and color option and 7µm x 7µm pixel size.

The readout is made by two 12-bit wide digital taps organized in odd/even order for each 2k segment. For each line segment, all 2k pixels follow the same readout approach.

For sensor versions with 3.5µm pixel pitch, two readout circuits are placed on each side of the pixel line, to lead to a basic segment of 4k pixels, even pixels read out over the bottom readout, odd pixels read out over the top readout.

This product suits for the following applications:

  • Automated optical inspection (AOI) in (SMD, PCB, flat panel, web)
  • Industrial sorting (e.g. food)
