Sep 2010
WATERLOO, Ontario, Sept. 20, 2010 — Digital imaging and semiconductor provider Dalsa Corp. announced it received a new order valued at over CAD $3 million for inspection equipment to be used in a new Asia-Pacific flat panel display factory.

The order includes the company’s flagship high-performance line-scan cameras and frame grabbers, with the delivery of the majority of these multiple hundreds of units scheduled for the first half of 2011.

Its high-performance inspection products inspect almost all of the world’s flat panel displays, from small mobile devices to large television screens, according to the company. The speed, resolution and power of the cameras and processing boards provide are vital to quality control systems that improve the yield and lower the cost of LCD and plasma screens.

“This latest order underlines our continued strength in digital imaging sales in 2010,” said Brian Doody, CEO. “Activity in the flat panel display capital equipment market has been very brisk this year, but I am please to report that we are seeing strong sales across a wide range of markets, including life science imaging and general machine vision.”

GLOSSARY
frame grabber
Image processing peripheral that converts video images from cameras into digital format and transfers these digital images to PCs.
line scan camera
An optical instrument used for quality control purposes that builds a 2D image of an object out of a series of one-line slices of it. Common applications include the inspections of webs, such as sheets of glass, fabric, rolls of paper, aluminum and steel. When used in a stereo configuration, a pair of line scan cameras can capture two images of the same object from slightly different perspectives, making 3D inspections possible.
