Features

Microscopy Camera

Basler USA (Exton, PA) has introduced an additional Basler PowerPack for Microscopy. The new PowerPack includes the Microscopy pulse 3.3 MP camera. With its 4:3 sensor format, the “pulse” 3.3 MP fits to the image circle of a microscope and reaches up to 20 frames per second. Additionally, an enhanced version of the Basler Microscopy Software offers image adjustment sliders on the top level of the user interface and shows the speed of the camera measured in frames per second.

Discrete Amplification Geiger Mode Arrays

Amplification Technologies Corp. (“ATC”) (Bensalem, PA) announced the availability of a new family of Discrete Amplification Photon Detector (DAPD) Geiger mode avalanche photodiode arrays for 3D LIDAR and other applications. LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) range finding systems have been in use for many years for civil and defense applications, measuring distance using a pulse of a laser beam aimed toward an object and measuring the time of flight of the reflected beam.

Packaging Inspection Technology

Rudolph Technologies, Inc. (Wilmington MA) recently unveiled its new patented Clearfind™ technology, which can detect organic defects that are difficult or impossible to see with conventional white-light imaging techniques. Organic contaminants are often the root cause of field failures, which occur after the material has been exposed to operating conditions for extended periods.
