Tetra

CMOS Line Scan Image Sensors

Tetra is a low-cost, high volume CMOS sensor family of 2k, 4k, 8k and 16k resolution for multispectral, color and monochrome imaging. These sensors are ideal for food sorting, recycling, logistics, pick-and-place and other machine vision applications that require cost-effective imaging.

High Performance, High Reliability

The sensor has a resolution of 2048 x 4 pixels with a 14µm x 14µm pixel size and runs at a maximum line rate of 100 kHz. The sensor outputs selectable 1, 2, or 4 rows. Based on a synchronized shutter design, the sensor provides low read noise and high dynamic range through the use of true correlated double sampling (CDS). Each channel has its own exposure control, resulting in easy-to-perform white balancing.

Low-Cost but High Performance Solutions

  • Speed – 100kHz aggregate for high speed imaging
  • Multispectral – unique spectrally independent RGB + NIR
  • Detectability – single, dual or quad outputs for improved SNR
  • Resolution – 2k, 4k, 8k and 16k for various resolution requirements
  • Color + Mono – output RGB + Mono images
  • Sync shutter – synchronized integration time for each row

Applications

  • Food, mineral and recycling sorting
  • Logistics
  • Pick-and-place
  • Spectroscopy
