An analog line scan camera needs a control signal or Clock (pixel frequency maximum of 10 MHz) and SOS (Start Of Scan) to function as well as a voltage supply of +5V or +/-12V.
The output of video data from an analog line scan camera is as a variable voltage in the range from 0−10V. Before the video data can be storedor used in a computer, a PC interface card (SK9180, SK9190) or an SK9158 A/D converter module is used to digitalize the signal.
The software package SK91PCI-WIN (…-LX) for Windows 7/XP (Linux) contains the display and control program SkLineScan® that allows use of the camera ‘out-of-the-box’. The Software Development Kit (SDK) enables the production of individualized program applications.
