How metrology cameras with high speed combined with high image quality improve accuracy

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Fri, Sep 12, 2014

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.

3D Metrology OEM Camera Requirements

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Wed, Jul 30, 2014

As the objects to inspect/measure in high-tech manufacturing become smaller, higher-resolution cameras with better spatial resolution can improve accuracy and precision.  This requires a high-quality machine vision camera design, or what is now called a metrology camera.  3D measurements in particular pose increasing demands on camera performance and reliability.

High-resolution CoaXPress cameras with image processing for expanded networking capabilities

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Wed, Jul 23, 2014

The BASTION project was initiated on April 1, 2014 with the main of objective to research and develop new applications for the Broadcast Market, and for the Security and Surveillance Markets.  Both will be built on top of the Internet Protocol network, which will allow distributing the video over several physical sites. The cameras will be located on one or more sites, and the monitoring/control room will be on a separate site. The main benefit of this distribution is that it will enable:

Increase Accuracy of Optical 3D Measurements

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Wed, Jul 9, 2014

In semiconductor and electronics manufacturing, there has been a move towards 3D measurements to provide accurate process control of smaller dimensions for higher yield and quality of new packaging technologies.  For example in electronics manufacturing a 2D view from the top only allows for detection of defects such as shifts, rotations, and cracks, but not whether components are flat on the board or the volume of solder paste.

Machine vision applications beyond the production floor: cataract surgery

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Thu, Jun 19, 2014

The LENSAR™ Laser System offers cataract surgeons precision and accuracy, while optimizing overall visual outcomes. The LENSAR™ Laser System is one of the only femtosecond lasers built specifically for refractive cataract surgery. Because it was designed from the ground up, every aspect of the laser has been purposefully designed to meet the needs of cataract surgeons.

HD daylight full motion video cameras now fill the low light identification gap

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Tue, Apr 29, 2014

In defense and global security electro-optical systems whether for surveillance, situational awareness, or targeting, daylight cameras are combined with cameras optimized for other portions of the light spectrum such as a Long Wave Infrared LWIR (thermal) camera, a NIR camera (low light) and a SWIR camera to obtain full motion video throughout the day and night. The thermal camera or image-intensified camera allows the operator to easily detect anomalies in a scene. Other cameras such as the SWIR or the visible camera can then be used to recognize or identify the anomalies.
