Paper Abstract

With this paper we would like to present an intelligent low- cost-camera. Intelligent means that a microcontroller does all the controlling and provides several in- and outputs. The camera is a stand-alone system. The basic element of the camera is a linear sensor that consists of a photodiode array (PDA). In comparison with standard CCD-chips this type of sensor is a low cost component and its operation is very simple. Furthermore this paper shows the mechanical, electrical and electro-optical differences between CCD- and PDA-sensors. So the reader will be able to choose the right sensor for a particular task. Two cases of industrial applications are listed at the end of this paper.
