CCD Image Sensors


Teledyne DALSA designs and manufactures CCD and CMOS image sensors and X-Ray detectors, the most fundamental components of digital imaging devices. During more than 30 years of research and development of professional imaging Teledyne DALSA has created dozens of patents in the design and fabrication of CCD and CMOS image sensors allowing them to offer the most innovative and best performing products on the market.

CMOS X-Ray detectors


In the last 10 years Teledyne DALSA focuses on X-Ray detectors for life sciences and industrial applications, where it became a market leader in CMOS flat detectors. The sixth-generation CMOS technology of TeledyneDALSA offers huge benefits in the chosen markets and outperforms by far the competing technologies and their CMOS competition. The company’s CMOS X-Ray detectors are radiation hard, have wide dynamic range, high resolution and unbeatable image quality at much lower dose.


Production process from CMOS wafer to large size flat X-Ray detector

Assuring excellent image quality at much lower X-Ray dose is extremely beneficial for the patients and for the medical staff. To manufacture their advanced detectors and to assure high quality and lifetime of their products, Teledyne DALSA has build the most advanced fully automated clean room facility in the industry. Proprietary technology and equipment is used to butt wafer-scale tiles together in a large size X-ray detector with boundaries as small as one or two pixels, and to align these tiles for optimum flatness to extremely tight tolerances.

CMOS, TDI in Line Scan Cameras Deliver More Accurate Web Inspection Systems

juli 20, 2017

Materials manufactured in a continuous roll or sheet, such as paper, textiles, film, foil, plastics, metals, glass or coatings, are most effectively inspected using machine vision line scan systems. These systems are designed to detect and identify defects in webs or objects moving at high speed. Line scan systems enable a complete surface inspection by building a continuous image, one row of pixels at a time, in the direction of the web’s motion. Image capture continues as long as the camera and web are operating. In addition to the unlimited pixels enabled by continuous motion, line scan imaging delivers crisp, smear-free images at high speeds, with higher dynamic range, greater processing efficiency and a much lower cost per pixel than traditional area scan systems. Lees meer [Bron:]
