NMOS linear image sensor


Voltage output type with current-integration readout circuit and impedance conversion circuit

NMOS linear image sensors are self-scanning photodiode arrays designed specifically as detectors for multichannel spectroscopy. The scanning circuit is made up of N-channel MOS transistors, operates at low power consumption and is easy to handle. Each photodiode has a large active area, high UV sensitivity yet very low noise, delivering a high S/N even at low light levels. NMOS linear image sensors also offer excellent output linearity and wide dynamic range. S3924-1024Q has a current-integration readout circuit utilizing the video line and an impedance conversion circuit. The output is available in boxcar waveform allowing signal readout with a simple external circuit. The photodiode of S3924-1024Q has a height of 2.5 mm and is arrayed in a row at a spacing of 25 μm. Quartz glass is the standard window material.
