The S11108 CMOS linear image sensor from Hamamatsu Corp. (Bridgewater, NJ) offers sensitivity of 50 V/(lx•s). An amplifier is embedded in each pixel of the CMOS sensor. The S11108, which features a spectral response range of 400-1000nm, has a 28.672mm active area comprised of 2048 pixels, each measuring 14 × 14 μm. The image sensor requires a single 5V power supply to function. In addition, its built-in timing generator operates on start and clock pulse inputs. Other features include 10 MHz high-speed video data rate and an electronic shutter option.
