Why Active Alignment Doesn’t Have to Mean High Cost

Our Pixid product release announcement was recently published in Image Sensors World and because it garnered a few comments concerning the cost of active alignment, we would like to take this opportunity to make sure our readers know that we are taking an innovative new approach to our camera module assembly systems.

By reducing the active alignment time to single digit seconds and providing per-module costs that are competitive with more traditional, passive alignment (i.e. screw-in) methods, we have developed products that provide our customers with a competitive edge both in terms of superior technology and lower manufacturing costs.  We want active alignment to be the new standard for camera modules that must keep pace with the fast-moving electronics industry and to do so, we have taken operating and purchasing costs into consideration with this new model.

In terms of value on a per module basis, we aim to be second to none.  And with that in mind, stay tuned for further discussion of active alignment, the camera module industry, and our value proposition.

Pixid 100 Series Camera Module Assembly Systems Now Available

Pixid 100 Pro

The Kasalis office is buzzing with the release of its Pixid 100 line of camera module assembly systems.  The Pixid 100 R&D and the Pixid 100 Pro models are the first systems available for shipment, and represent our solution for cost-effective, low-volume production of camera modules.

As technology in electronics such as smart phones and webcams advances, the precision of camera module alignment becomes increasingly important.  The Pixid 100 series systems feature active alignment in up to six degrees of freedom so that the process will yield the best possible focus quality across the entire imaging area.

We are thrilled to offer the Pixid 100 series to customers and look forward to releasing the Pixid 300 series for high-volume production, further advancing this groundbreaking technology and including more automated features, later this year.  Please check out our news page or camera module assembly systems page for more details and specifications.
