The May 2011 issue of Vision Systems Design features an article detailing flat-panel display (FPD) production and the crucial role that automated optical inspection (AOI) plays in that process. Entitled "Flat-Panel Color Filter Inspection" and co-written by Xing-Fei He, senior product manager at Teledyne DALSA, and Frank Fang, R&D director for Taiwanese system integrator Utechzone, the article covers the technology behind FPD production and the unique challenges faced in ensuring production remains defect-free throughout the process.
Teledyne DALSA's Piranha3 12-kpixel/5-μm linescan cameras are featured in this article as providing the AOI vision technology necessary to detect defects in-line with the FPD production workflow, without adding delays or compromising production quality. These cameras work together with the Sapera™ Vision Software suite to implement client-designed proprietary processing algorithms suited for their production environment.
