Teledyne DALSA's high sensitivity line scan products use TDI (time delay and integration) technology. TDI is a method of line scanning which provides dramatically increased responsivity compared to other video scanning methods. It permits much greater scanning speeds in low light, or allows reduced lighting levels (and costs) at conventional speeds. From wafer, PCB, and LCD panel inspection to high-end document scanning, Teledyne DALSA's advanced, high sensitivity line scan delivers an unmatched mix of sensitivity and speed.
TDI is based on the concept of accumulating multiple exposures of the same (moving) object, effectively increasing the integration time available to collect incident light. The object motion must be synchronized with the exposures to ensure a crisp image.
Absolute speed and performance. Charge domain CMOS TDI with 8k, 16k, or 32k resolution and line rates up to 400 kHz. CLHS interface with fiber options and unique multifield capabilities
Piranha XL line scan cameras bring new levels of sensitivity, speed, and low noise together through voltage-domain CMOS TDI. Color models too! 16k resolution up to 125 kHz line rate
