Toshiba Corporation to launch a new CCD linear image sensor for bar code readers in September 2013.
The new sensor, TCD1256GAG, shrinks package size to one-seventh that of Toshiba's current product, TCD1254GFG, and has an ultra-small package very close to the silicon sensor die size. It will minimize scan engine dimensions and expand the bar code reader application field.
TCD1256GAG emulates the basic performance and functions of Toshiba's current product, including the electronic shutter function that captures a stable video signal without saturation under ambient light conditions. On-chip sample and hold circuit makes simplifies analog signal processing and reduce layout area.
