InGaAs image sensor

Do InGaAs linear image sensors contain contiguous defective pixels?

No, they don't contain contiguous defective pixels. Even if they have defective pixels, there are 3 or more good pixels between each defective pixel.

What precautions should I take when connecting the video output of an InGaAs linear image sensor to the latter-stage circuit?

Increase the load resistance or add a buffer amplifier because there is a limit to the amount of supply current.

What precautions should I take when using the power supply for InGaAs linear image sensors?

Use a power supply with minimal ripple because the ripple of a power supply will be superimposed on the video signal. We recommend using a power supply with a ripple lower than 1 mV.
