Series production is expected to begin in mid-second-quarter 2002. The A102k is available in a monochrome version and includes features such as electronic exposure time control, selectable 8- or 10-bit output, a flash/strobe trigger output, binning, smear suppression, and test images. The camera also has an area-of-interest scanning capability and can run at higher frame rates when operating at lower resolutions.

Said product manager Ingo Lewerendt, "The A102k incorporates a new CCD sensor with superior image quality. The sensor's high signal-to-noise ratio and inherent low smear characteristics make the it ideal for applications such as intelligent traffic-control systems."

Products include color and monochrome linescan and area-scan digital cameras for high-speed and/or high-resolution applications. Product designs are driven by industry requirements offering easy interfacing, compact sizes, and a strong price/performance ratio.
