HAMAMATSU, Japan, Oct. 24, 2006 -- Hamamatsu Photonics announced today it is offering sample units, beginning Oct. 25, of its new LF1 series of flash light sources to both Japan-based and international manufacturers of semiconductor inspection systems and factory automation systems.
The LF1 series provides flash exposure for cameras used in semiconductor inspection and other inspection applications. The units can serve as replacements for halogen lamps or continuous mode xenon lamps; they are expected to aid in the development of new inspection methods, Hamamatsu said. The series delivers high-intensity light pulses through an optical fiber (maximum energy per flash: 1.28 joules). Large-area exposure is possible. The systems will be available in two models: the L10211 (light guide port in rear) and L10212 (light guide port in front).
Production release is currently scheduled to begin on Jan. 15.
