PRESS RELEASE: Teledyne DALSA Unveils New High Speed Piranha4 Camera Family

WATERLOO, Ontario - October 27, 2011 - Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and a global leader in machine vision technology, today introduced the Piranha4 8k/7 micron Dual Line Scan CMOS Camera (P4-8k). The first of its series, the P4-8k combines advancements in Teledyne DALSA's CMOS imaging sensor technology with outstanding signal-to-noise ratio for high speed imaging.

"With 8k/7 micron resolution and 70 kHz maximum line rate using the Camera Linkinterface, this camera inspects and detects with unrivalled precision, speed, and responsivity," said Xing-Fei He, Senior Product Manager at Teledyne DALSA. "The new Piranha4 cameras allow you to take your inspection system to the next level."

The Piranha4 family is based on Teledyne DALSA's unique CMOS dual line scan technology with on-chip CDS and on-chip ADC. It offers low read noise and high full well capacity. This gives our customers a better dynamic range for demanding applications. Other key features of the P4-8k include 100% fill factor, exposure control, 100x anti-blooming, and precise sensor alignment, which simplify multiple camera calibration at the system level. In addition, an advanced GenICam compliant interface makes the camera easier to setup, control, and integrate.

Programmability and Applications
Users can save up to four sets of flat-field correction coefficients, adjust gain and offset, and test pattern and diagnostics. The P4-8k camera is ideal for flat panel display, printed circuit board, solar cell, film, and large format web inspection. Other typical applications include parcel sorting, high performance document scanning, and high throughput applications.

Product Details and Availability
The Piranha4 line scan family includes 1k, 2k, 4k, and 8k resolutions with various pixel sizes based on CMOS dual line scan technology. Other models, in monochrome and color, will follow shortly.
