The S10227-10 from Hamamatsu Photonics is a CMOS Image Sensor that has a resolution of 1 (H) x 512 (V) pixels. It has a pixel size of 12.5 x 250 μm and a spectral response range from 400 to 1000 nm. This image sensor has a maximum line rate of 9434 lines/s, video data rate of up to 5 MHz, and clock pulse frequency of 50 kHz - 5 MHz. It has a peak sensitivity wavelength of 700 nm with a conversion efficiency of 1.6 μV/e-. This linear image sensor features simultaneous charge integration and the built-in timing generator allows operation with only start and clock pulse inputs.
The S10227-10 has a photosensitive area length of 6.4 mm and a saturation output voltage of less than 4.3 V. This image sensor requires a DC supply of 5V and has a readout noise of 0.45 mV rms. It is available in a resin-sealed glass-epoxy surface mount package that measures 4.4 x 9.1 x 1.6t mm and is ideal for barcode readers, displacement meters, refractometers, interferometers, and miniature spectrometers applications.
