Glaz LineScan-I-Gen2

Glaz LineScan-I-Gen2 is a high-speed, FPGA-based linear array camera platform. The LineScan-I-Gen2 is a drop-in replacement for the earlier LineScan-II. The LineScan-I-Gen2 uses a high-quality analogue front-end with one of the best high-speed ADCs on the market. Compared to the LineScan-I, the LineScan-I-Gen2 uses improved low-noise power management circuits, data compression and high USB transfer rates. It can measure up to 50,000 lines at up to 9000 lines/s without skipping a line. The cameras can also be configured at run-time to use PulseSync or TimeFill mode. The cameras are USB-powered and do not require any additional PC processing cards or hardware. They interface directly with a PC via high-speed USB 2.0.

The LineScan-I-Gen2 can be operated from an internal or external trigger. It also offers a Sync output. The Sync output can be used to generate a master trigger for other devices (TimeFill mode). In PulseSync mode the Sync port is exclusively used for Glaz multi-device synchronisation. The LineScan-I-Gen2 also features an additional Aux port. The Aux port can be used as output, to generate control signals, or as input, to capture external states.
