MIGDAL HA’EMEK, Israel February 15, 2011
The order includes multiple Falcon systems for 2D inspection. The systems are expected to be installed during the first quarter of 2011.
The CMOS Image Sensor (CIS) arena is an important market for our back-end inspection business. We see it growing due to the increasing global demand of camera-embedded hand-held devices, such as mobile phones and tablets, as well as the growing use of cameras in the automotive industry. Technology is also a factor in the increasing demand for our CIS inspection tools. As cameras trend to using CMOS Image Sensors with bigger arrays and higher resolutions, more inspection is needed. For example, cameras with 3 megapixels are sample inspected while cameras of 5 megapixels or greater, tend to be 100% inspected. We are very pleased with our positioning in this growing market and aim to grow further with it. We are expecting additional multiple orders from this strategic customer during 2011" added Mr. Porat.
