Paper Abstract

The continual challenge for machine vision is speed and illumination. Imaging capability and sophistication are not reasons enough to slow a production line. Camera performance must meet the demands of imaging precisely detailed features occurring on high speed lines. A Time Domain and Integtration (TDI) camera provides an advanced solution to those requirements. The TDI operation provides two basic benefits. First is an increase in the speed of operation. Second is the decrease in required light level. The remainder of this paper discusses the principle of TDI operation, how the benefits are achieved, and how TDI is realized in an industrial camera.
