What is the relation between full well and shot noise? Part 2

Although the shot noise increases with the signal, its relative contribution reduces As discussed in the first blog in this two-part series, in shot-noise-limited applications, a higher full-well leads to a better signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The shot noise is proportional to the square root of your signal in electrons. Although the shot noise increases with…

Semiconductor Inspection and Metrology Requires the Right Camera Technology

  Semiconductors are essential components that are the foundation of electronic devices. Accurate inspections are performed after each process step to ensure product quality.  Maintaining high standards is essential to achieving variability and defectivity control. Thus, the manufacturers can meet necessary reliability and performance regulations, especially as the size of electronic and optical devices continues to shrink.…

Exploring Bright Field versus Dark Field Lighting for Your Inspection Application

Bright or Dark Field Lighting in applications One of the key components of machine vision imaging is determining what kind of lighting is optimal for your set-up to achieve the best light-dark contrast; bright field lighting or dark field lighting. Bright field is the more commonly used lighting technique whereas dark field is advantageous when…

Display Inspection Demands Met with Gpixel GMAX Cameras

As manufacturers of display modules strive to improve product dependability, production yield, and throughput while also minimizing defects, there is a consistent need for increased display inspection accuracy.   New demands for inspection calibration requirements for display modules require simultaneous improvements to obtain: Higher resolution (over previous 25MP cameras) Accuracy in a range of temperatures…
