The state-of-the-art high-resolution global shutter CMOS image sensors (and subsequent metrology cameras) enable performance leaps for many measurement methods relied on in semiconductor and electronics process control systems. BUT, the extreme data rates present major challenges for OEMs in their new innovative systems. For camera builders these data rates are just as challenging in terms of camera component selection, small physical outline design, increased power dissipation, heat management within the camera and more.

The ICAF project which covered 3D single lens image capture, video over Ethernet, multi-view systems, high-speed cameras for 3D and HDTV recently announced results on their website.
The increasing trend from 2D measurements to 3D in semiconductor and electronics metrology and inspection systems results in more stringent requirements for the OEM camera.
High resolution, high-speed metrology cameras can be a great way to increase accuracy and throughput of equipment even with smaller features to inspect or measure. In order to realize these benefits, the optics, the frame grabber and other components in the imaging chain must be properly matched and optimized. With increases from 4 Megapixels to 8 or even 12 Megapixels at fast frame speeds, there are several considerations at the system level to utilize the higher data rate. Here we will mention a few…
This week we announced a new QUAD CoaXPress 1.1 high-speed area scan camera. This addition to the family of CMOS global shutter cameras offers highest speed, high resolution with reliable image quality to measure ever smaller critical structures or defects with the increased accuracy and throughput required by in-line optical metrology systems.
We have talked about how high resolution, high-speed metrology cameras can improve accuracy and throughput for process control systems used in semiconductor and electronics inspection. BUT, this is only true if the cameras provide the necessary image quality and deliver this image quality consistently at the full frame rate.
The benefits of greater accuracy and throughput from high-resolution cameras can only be realized if the entire image sensor is usable. Metrology cameras are optimized for uniformity and dynamic range among other parameters to provide the most accurate starting image. Metrology cameras are relied on when the pixel information is used as measurement input such as with process control systems for semiconductor and electronics manufacturing and others.
The great answer is yes! There have been many more CoaXPress frame grabbers made available this year.
Adimec provides a sneak peak at our new OEM camera for industrial metrology that will be unveiled at the Vision Show 2014. A few hints…high resolution, high speed, CoaXPress, low power.
