TDI Sensor: Introduction

  • TDI detector refers to Time Delay Integration, which has a distinct detector readout mode that is used for observation of high-speed moving objects under low light conditions, generally undetectable by classic CCD array
  • TDI mode offers increased responsivity for imaging applications, as compared to other video scanning methods, by allowing greater scanning speeds in low light and produces crisp image
  • Major benefits offered by the TDI sensor include high speed, low cost of operation, immune to reflections, high quantum efficiency, high resolution, and wide imaging areas
  • TDI sensors are utilized in applications that require both high speed and high sensitivity such as inline monitoring, inspection and guidance, sorting, and earth observation satellite (weather observation)
  • Traditionally, CCD systems were used for TDI sensors; however, presently, several companies are developing new solutions that combine CCD pixels and CMOS readout in one technology, as CMOS technology offers high degree of electronic circuit integration as compared to CCD. This TDI CCD-in-CMOS technology enables a single imager chip with both CCD and CMOS functionality.
  • Rise in use of TDI sensors for industrial line inspections with the fastest line frequencies, up to 100 kHz, boosts the market

Rise in adoption from Space Vertical

  • In terms of industry vertical, the space segment of the TDI sensor market is estimated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to an increase in usage of TDI sensor for earth observation and land scanning applications
  • These TDI sensors for earth observation applications are integrated with CMOS Image Sensors (CIS) technology that offer small pixels, high line rates, on-chip functionality, digital outputs, and cost-effective small satellite optical payloads
  • TDI sensors also offer many emerging earth observation remote sensing applications such as land use mapping, urban infrastructure, agriculture, national resource management, disaster management, maritime, and security & surveillance
  • Moreover, Earth Observation (EO) is a dramatically expanding area of space science and technology, seeking to deliver timely, comprehensive and essential information for various applications
  • Increase in adoption of TDI sensors for various scientific fields, astronomy, planetary exploration, heliophysics and earth science applications is further propelling the market
  • Sensitivity to misalignment, sensitivity to speed mismatching, and lack of exposure control feature hamper the global TDI sensor market

North America to Lead Global TDI Sensor Market

  • In terms of region, the global TDI sensor market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America
  • North America is expected to hold a prominent share of the global TDI sensor market during the forecast period due to an increase in demand from space, aerospace, and defense industries
  • TDI sensors can be extensively employed for defense and security applications such as small target detection and tracking, missile guidance, and wide area surveillance. It helps reduce the workload of human expertise in order to cope with the consistent increase in image data volume that is being collected.
  • Key features offered by TDI sensors include very high resolution, high speed, very high ground sampling distance (GSD) capability, and low power consumption for airborne and defense applications
  • In 2020, Creating Helpful Incentives to Produce Semiconductors (CHIPS) for America Act (National Defense Authorization Act and American Foundries Act) have provided strong support for the semiconductor industry by investing US$ 3 billion of R&D funding for the National Science Foundation, and US$ 2 billion for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. This factor is fueling the market in the region.
  • Furthermore, rapid urbanization, rising space activities, and increasing manufacturing activities also propel the TDI sensor market
  • The TDI sensor market in Asia Pacific and Europe is projected to expand at a significant rate during the forecast period due to an increase in demand for TDI sensor from countries in Western Europe. The TDI sensor market in Middle East & Africa and South America is anticipated to expand at a sluggish pace during the forecast period.
