The Piranha HS, a 12-k 90-kHz time-delay-integration camera, has
been unveiled by Dalsa Corp. It delivers 12-k resolution with a 5.2-μm pixel
size and operates at a line rate of 90 kHz, or 1.2 gigapixels per second. The HSLink
interface builds on Camera Link and adds new features and functions. It delivers
a scalable bandwith in 300-MB/s steps, from 300 to 6000 MB/s. The camera is supported
by the proprietary Xcelera-HS PX8 frame grabber, which provides image acquisition
bandwidth of 1.8 GB/s and host transfer bandwidth of 2 GB/s over multiple-lane PCI
Express implementations. Time-delay-integration technology enables low-light imaging.
The camera features bidirectionality, antiblooming and programmability and is suited
for flat panel display, electronics, printed circuit board and solar cell inspection
applications. It is supported by the company’s Sapera Essential software.
