X-ray TDI Cameras
Jun 2011Hamamatsu CorporationRequest Info
Hamamatsu Corp. has added Model C10650-461 to its line of x-ray
time delay integration (TDI) cameras for nondestructive inspection and testing.
While maintaining high sensitivity, the “no gap” camera’s TDI
technology offers higher resolution than standard line-scan cameras produce, according
to the company. The camera is suitable for high-throughput inspection of printed
circuit boards, electronic assemblies with ball grid arrays and other surface-mounted
components, batteries and pharmaceuticals. It features a TDI CCD image sensor with
6144 x 128 pixels coupled with a CsI scintillator. Each pixel measures 48 x 48 μm,
which is suitable for high-resolution imaging. The TDI line rate is 6 m/min at full
resolution and 11 m/min with 2 x 2 binning. X-ray images are output as 16-bit data
via a Camera Link interface.
