The sensor features a low noise pixel with true CDS and global shutter for interleaved readout during integration. Each line has its own column parallel ADC, which can be configured individually for each of the 4 lines to equalize colour miss match or enable wide dynamic range. The readout is performed over LVDS bit serial taps which can be multiplexed to reduce output tap count. For scanning applications, for instance, the sensor provides up to 160kHz line rate in full resolution and can increase the line rate when using partial readout mode (ROI). The Black and White version of the sensor is ideal for 4:1 digital TDI. The Colour version, which offers Red, Green, Blue, and Clear channels, allows to combine the colour information with NIR information, revealing otherwise hidden details.  Please note that we offer today only engineering samples, production ramp up is expected towards Q3 2017.

Independently form 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 or detecting extremely low signal levels. The high aspect ratio photo-diode makes the Orion sensors ideal for spectrometric and OCT applications where the light is gathered over a wide area.

                      • AS73211 - A fully-integrated sensor chip solution

                      • The MTCS-CDCAF XYZ color sensor with I²C interface in a compact QFN16 housing and on-chip temperature sensor for measuring color and regulating light of multi-channel LED light sources to correct for spectral changes caused by temperature drift and aging.

                        The AS73211 is a True Color Sensor IC with I²C interface for relative and color measurement and control. The combination of True Color XYZ sensitized photodiodes with a filter function based on the standard CIE 1931/DIN 5033 (human eye perception) and used interference filter technology as leading and most accurate technology of three-range sensors makes the AS73211 more accurate than RGB sensors and guarantee this function without spectral changings over lifetime.

                        The AS73211 is designed with a high dynamic range to measure any light in the visible range (VIS) in environments from sunlight to dark rooms, dimmed LEDs, or dark colored monitors. The programmable gains with the option of synchronization allows the user to optimize the sensitivity and match the requirements in a huge range of input light intensity for specific applications, timings and interrupts..

                      • AS73210 - XYZ color sensor in SMD QFN16 package for automated assembly

                      • The AS73210 is a True Color1 Sensor IC with a filter function based on the color standard CIE 1931/DIN 5033 (human eye perception) in a compact QFN16 package. The AS73210 is longterm stable over the entire product lifetime and resistant to external influences such as temperature or aging drifts, e to the special JENCOLOR® interference filter technology.

                        The JENCOLOR® sensors are made of 19x3 photodiodes integrated on-chip (special pin silicon technology with advanced sensitivity). The diodes are aligned as segments of a multipleelement hexagonal matrix structure with the diameter of 2 mm.

                        The design as Si-PIN photodiodes allows signal frequencies up to the MHz-range. In order to achieve minimal cross talk between the photodiodes the individual sectors are separated from each other by additional structures.

                        Based on the QFN package and the special JENCOLOR® interference filter technology, the AS73210 is long-term stable over the entire product lifetime and resistant to external influences such as temperature drifts. The AS73210 operates within temperature ranges of -20°C to 100°C.
