Teledyne DALSA’s backside illuminated TDI camera delivers greater sensitivity for near ultraviolet and visible imaging.
Teledyne DALSA announced the start of production of its Linea HS 16k Backside Illuminated (BSI) TDI camera designed for Near Ultraviolet (NUV) and visible imaging applications. The model uses Teledyne DALSA’s charge-domain CMOS TDI 16k sensor with a 5×5 μm pixel size and delivers a maximum line rate of 400 kHz aggregate. Compared with Front Side Illumination (FSI), the BSI model improves quantum efficiency in the near UV and visible wavelengths and boosts signal-to-noise ratio in light starved conditions, the company says. The Linea HS 16k BSI camera also offers a CLHS data interface that delivers 6.5GPix/sec data throughput in a single cable. An active optical cable (AOC) enables a longer cable length which eliminates the need for a repeater.
