Camera Delivers Speeds of 1.2 Gigapixels / Second

( Providing 12k resolution with 5.2 µm pixel size, Piranha(TM) HS Camera delivers break through speeds of 90 kHz line rate and is supported by Xcelera-HS PX8 frame grabber. HSLink machine vision connectivity interface provides scalable bandwidth in 300 MBps steps, from 300-6,000 MBps. Featuring time delay and integration for low light imaging, programmable camera.

gigaslice2YOKOHAMA, Japan – ’09 ITE – DALSA Corporation (TSX: DSA), a global leader in machine vision technology, today introduced the Piranha(TM) HS 12k 90 kHz camera. This new high-speed model features 12k resolution with a 5.2 um pixel size, and breakthrough speeds of 90 kHz line rate or 1.2 gigapixels/second. This new camera is being showcased at ’09 ITE, the International Technical Exhibition on Image Technology and Equipment, December 2-4, 2009 at Pacifico Yokohama in Yokohama, Japan in booth # 167. With DALSA’s newly developed HSLink interface, the Piranha HS 12k camera delivers unprecedented speeds, high resolution and compact design. The HSLink interface is a new machine vision connectivity interface pioneered by DALSA.

Teledyne DALSA Piranha cameras were developed for applications requiring high speeds and high line rates. Top model of the Piranha 3 exceeds the existing limits of machine vision.

With linear resolutions from 8,000 up to 16,000 pixels plus 8 output channels, this line scan camera provides the ultimate solution for very demanding applications. The cameras achieve a maximum line rate of up to 70kHz, featuring a CMOS line scan sensor for the 16k model.
