Teledyne DALSA Announces Faster, Higher Resolution Piranha4 8k Color CMOS Line Scan Camera
August 30, 2012
WATERLOO, Ontario – August 30, 2012 - Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and a global leader
in machine vision technology, today continued its advanced CMOS sensor deployment with the launch of the new
8k Color CMOS line scan camera with 8k resolution and a 7 µm x 7 µm pixel size for optimized optical design. The Piranha4 series
combines advancements in Teledyne DALSA’s CMOS image sensor technology with outstanding signal-to-noise ratio for high speed
inspection. The color version of this camera is ideal for automatic optical inspection of flat panel displays, electronics,
printed material, solar cells, film, and large format web inspection.
“With line rates up to 50 kHz at full resolution, the Piranha4 8k Color camera inspects with unrivalled precision, speed,
and responsivity,” said Xing-Fei He, Senior Product Manager at Teledyne DALSA. “Our unique sensor design minimizes spectral
and spatial crosstalk delivering the industry’s best image quality in high performance color imaging.”
The Piranha4 Color is based on Teledyne DALSA’s unique CMOS bilinear line scan technology with on-chip CDS and on-chip ADC.
It offers low read noise and high full well capacity, resulting in a better dynamic range for demanding applications.
Programmability features of the P4 8k Color camera include exposure control, gain setting, flat field correction,
white balance, and color correction. Special algorithms allow defocusing capability in flat field correction and white balancing
without the need of adjusting the optical lens. In addition, an advanced GenICam™ compliant interface makes the camera easier to
setup, control, and integrate.
