Orion is a digital high speed line scan sensor with configurable photo-diode size. Over the SPI interface the photo-diode size can be configured to a 10 µm x 10 µm size or 10 µm x 200 µm size. Independently from the photo-diode the conversion capacitance can be configured over SPI interface. The larger conversion capacitance, resulting in a full well capacity of 300ke- results in outstandingly high SNR. The smaller conversion capacitance, resulting in a full well capacity of 30ke- results in very high sensitivity, ideal for high speed scanning applications.
