Linea HS 16k multifield TDI camera
Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies [NYSE:TDY] company and global leader in machine vision technology, is pleased to announce the availability of its newest charge-domain CMOS TDI camera – the Linea HS 16k Multifield TDI camera. Multifield imaging allows end-users to capture multiple images e.g. brightfield, darkfield, and backlit images simultaneously in a single scan.
Based on a multi-array TDI sensor architecture, the 16k camera offers 100-kHz x 3 line rate or 5 GPix/sec data throughput for high-performance imaging applications such as flat panel display, PCB and wafer inspection, life science, aerial imaging and web inspection.
A first in the industry, the Linea HS 16k Multifield camera uses integrated dichroic filters with minimum spectral crosstalk to spectrally isolate and capture up to three field images e.g. brightfield, darkfield and backlit in a single scan. Combined with advanced lighting, multifield significantly improves tact time and detectability.
“For demanding applications like OLED display automatic optical inspection (AOI), end-users currently need to scan multiple times in various lighting conditions to detect defects. With the new Linea HS Multifield camera, customers can complete what used to require three separate passes in a single scan. This significantly boosts the data throughput of an AOI system and with it, improved detectability,” said Xing-Fei He, Senior Product Manager for Teledyne DALSA’s line scan portfolio.
Combined with Teledyne’s Xtium™2 CLHS series of high-performance frame grabbers, these new products represent a breakthrough in data throughput. Built on field-proven technology, the next generation CLHS fiber optic interface provides reliable and high throughput data transmission. Fiber optic cables lower system costs, offer longer cable lengths (up to 300 m), are immune to electromagnetic radiation, and are ideal for industrial environments. Teledyne DALSA’s Xtium2 family of high-performance frame grabbers feature the PCI Express Gen 3 x8 platform.
- High speed of up to 100k-Hz x 3 line rate in 16k resolutions, or 5 Gpix/sec
- Minimum spectral crosstalk
- Very low noise and high sensitivity
- Active pixel assisted alignment
- Camera Link HS fiber optic interface for high reliability and long cable data transmission
- Lowers system costs
Teledyne DALSA has also introduced the Xtium™2-CXP series of high-performance frame grabbers. The new series transfers image data to the host memory at maximum acquisition rates with zero CPU utilization, allowing host applications to operate at maximum efficiency.
The Xtium2-CXP series is compatible with CoaXPress® version 2.0 and uses the PCI Express Gen3 x8 platform to deliver sustained image acquisition bandwidth of up to 6.8 GB/s to the host memory. The Xtium2-CXP frame grabber series supports image acquisition rates of up to 12.5Gbs and models are available in 4, 2 and 1-channel configurations. The Xtium2 series is fully supported by Teledyne DALSA’s free Sapera LT SDK.
With its 2 GB of image memory, the Xtium2-CXP prevents data loss when the PCIe bus is being utilized by other devices in the system, and data cannot be transferred for processing. Fully compatible with Teledyne DALSA’s Trigger-To-Image Reliability (T2IR) framework, the new CXP boards deliver ready-to-use images and support both area and line scan monochrome, RGB and Bayer color cameras.
“The Xtium2-CXP series combines high performance image acquisition with our T2IR framework making it an ideal choice for demanding applications in a growing number of industries,” said Senior Product Manager, Inder Kohli.
When combined with the industry’s newest and highest resolution cameras, the Xtium2-CXP series frame grabbers enable some of the most demanding vision applications.
Xtium2-CXP Key Features:
- Half-length PCIe Gen3 x8 board, with 4 micro-BNC coaxial connectors
- Maximum image acquisition bandwidth of up to 5.0GB/s, maximum host bandwidth up to 6.8GB/s
- Supports CXP 1.x and 2.0 cameras with 4, 2 or 1 output channels of up to 12.5Gbs/ channel
- Simultaneous acquisition from multiple independent cameras
