C7883 series is a driver circuit specifically designed for the Hamamatsu current-output type NMOS linear image sensors (S3901 to S3904 series, S8380/S8381 series). NMOS linear image sensors are self-scanning photodiode arrays integrated with a scanning circuit of N-channel MOS transistors.
C7883 series supplies start pulses and 2-phase clock pulses necessary for image sensor operation. C7883 series also includes a signal processing circuit to read out video signals from an image sensor in the current-to-voltage conversion mode. C7883 series operates by input of a master start pulse, master clock pulse and connection to a power supply (+12 V or +15 V).
● High-speed operation (compared to C7884)
● Compact (compared to conventional type C4069)
● Single power supply (+12 V or +15 V) operation
