New High-Speed Trilinear Camera
JAI announced the addition of a new high-speed trilinear color line scan camera to its Sweep Series camera family. The new SW-4000TL-PMCL features a custom CMOS trilinear imager with 4K (4,096 pixels) resolution and a maximum full line rate of 66 kHz for 24-bit non-interpolated RGB output.
The new SW-4000TL-PMCL trilinear camera expands the options for designers of color line scan-based systems, which have previously relied on JAI’s Sweep+ Series of prism-based RGB and RGB+NIR line scan cameras to deliver the maximum in color image fidelity, sensitivity, and configuration flexibility. The high performance trilinear technology in the SW-4000TL-PMCL has been combined with a broad set of advanced features - many of them unique among high speed trilinear cameras - to give designers an attractive alternative for applications not requiring the ultimate precision provided by prism cameras.
For example, the custom CMOS imager features not just three, but six separate lines of 7.5-micron pixels with two lines each of red, green, and blue pixels. This arrangement makes it possible for the SW-4000TL-PMCL to provide horizontal binning, vertical binning, or both – a feature not offered on other high-speed trilinear cameras. Furthermore, the sensor’s readout architecture combines the readout of two pixels through a single diffusion node to double the signal without increasing noise, enabling the binning process to dramatically increase sensitivity.
