TDI Camera


TDI cameras are designed for niche applications, to find your perfect match please contact our experts.

The C10000-801 TDI camera is useful for a wide range of imaging applications requiring high-speed operation with high sensitivity simultaneously. TDI is a special image acquisition method that has been used extensively in machine vision applications for industrial inspection. TDI imaging is appropriate for applications where it is desired to record a linear process over time, or where the aspect ratio of the subject being imaged is significantly asymmetric. TDI is particularly useful for low light level scanning applications for which a typical line scan camera can not make a useful image. Also, frame readout mode is available for easy focusing.


  • High resolution / high sensitivity (Horizontal spatial resolution with 128(V) TDI stages): 2048(H) × 128 (V), 4 TAP
  • Line rate up to 50 kHz
  • High speed imaging combined with high sensitivity and low noise
  • Great spectral response for UV-NIR with back-thinned CCD
  • 100× anti-blooming with lateral overflow drain
  • Dynamic range of 1600:1
  • 12 bit / 8 bit selectable A/D converter
  • Bidirectional scanning operation
  • Frame readout mode for easy focusing
  • Real time shading correction internal DSP
