Electronics & Semiconductors

Electronics and Semiconductors

For decades now, cameras have been used in the inspection of electronic components. The components in use are growing more and more compact even as the production cycle is sped up. Any electronic device, be it a computer, cell phone or television, has circuits with numerous electronic components inside. These must be inspected during and after production using cameras systems. The active components are produced on semi-conductor wafers. The density and complexity of structures found on a single wafer are growing from year to year. The demands for quality control and thus put on the camera systems continue rising as well.

Basler cameras are extraordinarily well-suited to the various applications found in the electronics industry. Among their features:

  • High quality sensors
