WATERLOO, ONTARIO-- DALSA Corp. has recently received a new order valued at more than $3 million for inspection equipment to be used in a new Asia-Pacific flat panel display factory. The order includes DALSA's flagship high performance line scan cameras and frame grabbers, with the delivery of the majority of these multiple hundreds of units scheduled by first half of 2011.

DALSA's high performance inspection products inspect flat panel displays, from small mobile devices and large television screens. The company's cameras and processing boards provide speed, resolution, and power for quality control systems to improve the yield and lower the cost of LCD and plasma screens. With 400 million older CRT televisions still in use in China and ripe for upgrade to flat panels, television manufacturers are building factories in order to be close to this market and reduce costs.
