Dragster Demo Kit
The evaluation system features a highly configurable hardware which enables an easy setup of ams Sensors Belgium´s Dragster linescan family for a quick sensor evaluation. Image data is transferred to a frame grabber over high speed camera link. Any grabber that supports at least a camera link base configuration can directly acquire data from any Dragster version. The system controls the sensor operation using an FPGA to define the state machine timings, it acquires data synchronously and multiplexes that data to one Camera-Link base interface. Over an RS232 serial interface the user can have access to the state machine configuration and all sensor registers. It is possible to read back those sensor registers.
Dragster Line Scan
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.
