Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation (Toshiba) has launched “TCD2726DG,” a lens reduction type CCD linear image sensor that achieves high-speed scanning for A3 multifunction printers. Shipments of engineering samples start today, the company said on Wednesday.
“There is growing demand for A3 multifunction printers with higher scanning speeds. TCD2726DG meets the demand by improving the performance with a faster operating clock rate: a 100MHZ (50MHz x 2ch) data rate, against the 70MHz (35MHz x 2ch) data rate of Toshiba’s current sensor.
“To prevent increased electromagnetic interference (EMI), a negative side effect of a faster clock rate, the new sensor incorporates a timing generator circuit and has a lower CCD driver pin count. This reduces EMI- and timing-adjustment work for customers, and the number of peripheral parts, contributing to easier system development.”
The key features include:
- 100MHz (50MHz x 2ch) data rate, CCD linear image sensor
- Built-in Timing Generator circuit and CCD driver, facilitating system development
- Low power consumption: 10V power supply voltage for amplifier circuit lowered to 3.3V
