Toshiba develops contact image-sensor module for recognition of banknotes
Toshiba Corporation announced that it will enter the linear image-sensor market for banknote recognition applications, a high growth business. The company has developed a contact image-sensor module (CISM) for banknote recognition as its first product, and mass production is scheduled for June 2013.
Toshiba has cultivated a linear image-sensor business with products for scanning applications, such as MFPs and text and image scanners, and sensing applications, such as barcode readers. The company has now broadened its portfolio in the sensing field with a linear image-sensor that offers approximately four times the infrared sensitivity of existing Toshiba products. The new linear sensor is a CISM integrated with the new sensors and it will be promoted as a solution that meets the Chinese government's enhanced requirements for banknote recognition systems, under the national standard "GB16999-2010".
