3D Metrology OEM Camera Requirements

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.  

How Active Sensor Control Provides Reliable Pixel Data for Metrology Cameras

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…
