Mightex’s TCN-1304-U line camera is a cost-effective high-performance B/W board-level line camera, based on a single-line, 3648-pixel CCD chip with USB2.0 (480 Mb/s) interface. CCD line cameras have several advantages over their area-array counterparts, including high optical linear resolution that allows systems developers to use the cameras to capture two-dimensional (2-D) images by moving the object or the CCD perpendicularly to the scan line. The TCN-1304-U is a compact, board-level line-scan camera ideal for a variety of OEM applications in industry process control, optical spectroscopy and bio-medical imaging etc.. Setting up the TCN-1304-U line camera is very easy, the user simply installs the latest version of the operating software onto any desktop or notebook PC and then connects the USB cable from the line camera to the PC. There is no need for installing a DAC card, or using an external power supply. A full-featured SDK and a Linux driver are also available.
