General Description
Integration
Asynchronous Reset
The TM-1020-15CL’s asynchronous reset is flexible and
accepts external horizontal drive (HD) for phase locking.
When the VINIT pulse is applied, it resets the camera’s
scanning and purging of the CCD. There are three modes to
control the asynchronous reset and shutter speed:
❶ External VINIT with pulse width. The duration between
pulse edges controls the shutter speed externally.
➋ Internal shutter speed with Fast mode. The video signal
has no delay from the reset timing (shutter speed range is
1/2,000 to 1/16,000 sec.)
➌ Internal shutter speed with Slow mode. The speed control varies from 1/125 to 1/1,000 sec. The video signal starts
with internal V reset timing related to shutter speed.

Electronic Shutter
The TM-1020-15CL has a substrate drain-type shutter
mechanism which provides a superb picture at various
speeds without smearing. A built-in manual shutter speed
control selects the electronic shutter rate of 1/60 (non-async
mode only), 1/125, 1/250, 1/500, 1/1,000, 1/2,000, 1/4,000,
1/8,000, or 1/16,000 second.
The CCD discharges at a high VINIT of 5V DC. With a
negative pulse to VINIT, the camera resets and purges the
charge momentarily. Then it starts integrating for the period
of preset shutter control time by either an external pulse
width or internal shutter control.
Progressive scanning permits a full 1000 lines of vertical
resolution, as compared to a conventional CCD camera
which captures only half the vertical lines per shutter.

AccuPiXEL Series
The CCD imager of the TM-1020-15CL can be exposed
for longer than the normal scan timing of 1/15 sec. This integration feature provides extra sensitivity for dark-environment applications. The progressive-scan imager permits a
full frame of resolution in non-interlace format. Integration is
achieved by controlling pin #11 of the 12-pin connector to
low (GND).
Product Summary
TM-1020-15CL
The TM-1020-15CL is a miniature, high-resolution monochrome progressive scan CCD camera. The imager resolution is 1008 x 1018 pixels and the frame rate is 15 frames
per second. The interline transfer CCD permits full vertical
and horizontal resolution of high speed shutter images. The
electronic shutter has speed up to 1/16,000 sec. and can be
reset asynchronously by external pulse control. The square
imager format with uniform square pixels provides superior
image definition in any orientation.
The TM-1020-15CL has a patent-pending, PULNiX exclusive, built-in look-up table (LUT). This full dynamic rangecontrol function can be set at externally selectable knee
slopes to optimize the CCD’s full dynamic range in the normal output signal range.
Camera Link™ is a cable specification that includes data
(8 bits) transmission as well as camera control and asynchronous serial communication all on a single cable. The
Camera Link standard defines a single connector for both
the frame grabber and camera end, and ensures that all
Camera Link products are interchangeable with each other.
The TM-1020-15CL has a pixel clock locking phase lock
loop (PLL) for multi-camera operation which requires exact
data and clock phases from each camera (optional).*
Applications for the TM-1020-15CL include machine
vision, medical imaging, intelligent transportation systems,
high-definition graphics, gauging, character recognition, documents archiving, and surveillance.
TM-1020-15CL Progressive Scan High-Resolution Shutter Camera
Dynamic Range Control
resulting in all lines being obtained per captured image frame
with electronic shutter.
Typical interline transfer CCDs have fixed noise levels based
on dark current (thermal or KT noise), pattern noise, and operating clock speed.Typically for a 1k x 1k CCD operating at
20MHz pixel clock, the noise level is around 30 electrons.The
maximum capacity of the CCD charges is limited by the well
capacity at saturation.The range is limited by the structure and
the pixel size.
The TM-1020-15CL uses a 1” CCD with 9.0 µm x 9.0 µm
pixel and two-phase vertical shift register structure.The well
capacity is 50,000 electrons.The theoretical dynamic range is
50,000:30 = 1667:1 (64 dB).
A typical CCD camera does not use the full dynamic range
due to the nominal gain and the output specification such as RS170.The typical CCD camera has its gain set at 16 to 22 dB and
the RS-170 video level is 714 mV. Using 20 dB gain for the calculation, CCD output is limited to 714/10 = 71.4 mV. Since the
CCD’s saturation voltage is 400 mV to 500 mV, it uses less than
1/5 of the full dynamic range.
Machine vision and outdoor applications cannot afford to miss
image information behind the saturation, which is why the
dynamic range adaptation is critical.

Two-Row Binning
This is a standard feature in the TM-1020-15CL.The camera
scans two rows together and outputs 1008 (H) x 508 (V) pixels
at 30 frames per second.Two-row binning is typically implemented to increase speed.

Programmable LUT and Knee Control
(patent pending)
The TM-1020-15CL has a built-in LUT (look-up table) for
dynamic range control. At a specific gain setting, the offset (minimum level... dark point) and A/D reference top voltage (maximum level... saturation point) are set to 10-bit A/D input so that
full dynamic range of CCD is utilized at 10-bit references as the
input and the LUT output is converted into 8-bit to adjust the
gamma correction.
The look-up table has two knee points (variable gamma selection) that allow the 10-bit to be segmented into three regions.
The look-up table selection can be made either by variable knee
curve or by direct input.
Linear image:When PCB surface is
visible, metal trace is saturated. If the
metal surface appears, then the plastic
surface is too dark.

Pixel Clock Locking*
MDR 26-pin connector
(0226-622VC)
For multiple-camera applications such as 2D or 3D
measurement, a parallel digital data input capability is
important. The high resolution and precision measurement
requires that camera data be consistent and free from phase
lock loop (PLL) jitter. This is especially important for digital
output mulitplexing.
The TM-1020-15CL has an optional capability for pixel clock
locking. It takes RS-422 (differential) external clock and H and
V reset sync (TTL or RS-422). By doing this, each camera’s
digital data is in-phase with the pixel clock (data clock) for
multiplexing or parallel input to a frame grabber.
