Advantages of Active Alignment: Adimec’s Production Processes for Tool Matching

The manufacturing of an Adimec industrial camera is not as simple as using fasteners, connectors, and adhesives to integrate all electrical and mechanical components. As components become smaller with reduced tolerances, industrial camera manufacturers face new challenges in production.  There are specific operations and measures taken through each stage of the process used to ensure…

Multi-Exposure Benefits For Display Inspection

multi-exposure function Today’s display modules offer high resolution, vast color representation and refresh rates that present motion better than ever before.  We find these types of displays in our tablets, mobile phones, and other personal devices both large and small.  As the capabilities of display modules increase, the complexity of defects increases as well. Cameras…

Achieving Uniformity Inspection of OLED Displays

Achieving Uniformity Inspection of OLED Displays OLED (organic light-emitting diode) and Micro LED displays are modern display technologies we see in our mobile phones, televisions, and other portable computing systems. OLEDs offer a greater contrast ratio and deeper black level because OLEDs emit their own light. The absence of a backlight allows blacks to be…

Changing from CCD to High-Resolution CMOS for Display Module Inspection

Changing from CCD to High-Resolution CMOS for Display Module Inspection The trends in the electronic display industry are changing at a staggering pace. We see resolution increases from 720p to UHD 4k and eventually UHD 8K. There is also a vast range of display types including OLED, curved, flexible, and microdisplays. As these technologies become…

Moving from CCD towards CMOS cameras as Many CCD Sensors go Obsolete

Moving from CCD to CMOS Cameras CCD Sensors go Obsolete In the world of cameras, the favored image sensor type is now evolving.  Two of the most popular visible sensor technologies found in the industry are CMOS (complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor) and CCD (charge-coupled device). In the past, CCD offered a higher image quality with better light…

Switching from 25 Mpx to 65 Mpx with the Sapphire S-65 Camera

As manufacturers of high-end semiconductors and display modules are striving to increase product reliability as well as reduce quality control errors, there is a consistent need for increased inspection accuracy. The Adimec S-25A30 and S-25A70 cameras are successful products that offer the semiconductor inspection and metrology market high-resolution, global shutter, high image quality cameras at…

5, 10 and 25 GigE Advances in Camera Interface Technology compared to CoaXPress 1.1 and 2.0

5, 10 and 25 GigE Advances in Camera Interface Technology compared to CoaXPress 1.1 and 2.0 Introduction Gigabit Ethernet vision was released in 2006 and provides a gigabit per second interface for cameras with a cable length of up to 100-meters.  That worked when cameras were low resolution or even now with a medium resolution…
