At the Vision Show in Boston 2012 last week, the predominant trends were a huge increase in CMOS cameras and a widespread adoption of CoaXPress.
Higher resolution cameras combined with high speeds allow for improvements in accuracy required by manufacturers of semiconductor wafer inspection and metrology equipment.
While smartphones are affecting available image sensor technology, there are also advances in machine vision to support the production of smartphones.
The changes in PCB manufacturing with smaller chips, different packages, higher density printed circuit board, and multi-layered, and more complex boards are resulting in the migration from 2D to 3D measurements. Here we provide more details on the machine vision camera requirements to enable this change.
The trend in 2011 towards increased CCD image sensor use over CMOS, was contrary to what was expected. We believe this is just a slow adoption of new technology and not an indication of any long-term trends. Regardless of the differing available data we still believe that CMOS image sensors will be used significantly more in…
There has been a lot of talk (us included) about the use of CMOS image sensors taking over CCD image sensors in machine vision. Recent data reported in the 2012 AIA Machine Vision Camera Study, shows that the opposite was true in 2011. We at Adimec still believe CMOS image sensors will gain significant adoption…
High-resolution cameras combined with high speeds support latest smartphones production demand, part 3
Higher resolution cameras combined with high speeds allow for move to 3D required by manufacturers of PCB inspection equipment.
We are proud of reaching the 20 year milestone this month. It is a time for us to reflect on the past and use this to plan for a successful future. For our customers, suppliers, and employees, Adimec’s 20 year anniversary means innovations without risks.
With changes in our society, there is an increased demand in state-of-the art smartphones and tablets. This is driving other industries as well, including machine vision.
When determining the best industrial camera, one of the first considerations is to determine if your application is shot noise limited. This can help you prioritize the most important camera parameters, such as dynamic range or sensitivity. In this blog we explain how to determine if your imaging system is light limited or shot noise…
