Pixid systems position lenses in six different axes to achieve optimal alignment, relative to image sensor, to obtain the highest optical performance. By using active alignment, the resulting optical modules have the most uniform clarity available in today’s market of extremely compact cameras and projectors.
Adaptive Intelligence is an advanced software suite that uses statistical process control, embedded in our manufacturing systems, to streamline the active alignment, assembly, and testing processes. The unique algorithm in our software uses historic feedback to constantly improve performance.
The target module is customized according to the alignment parameters desired for the resulting optical modules. Our customer projects have resulted in a variety of target types and can be custom designed for wide or narrow field of view, and some options include diopters, collimators, beam profilers, and low speckle targets.
Pixid systems utilize a vision-guided dispense substation for accurate and repeatable dispensing of adhesive. The lens is aligned with adhesive already on its periphery. Once the final lens position is determined, the adhesive is solidified, or cured, by using UV light to initiate a polymer reaction.
Our automated UV (ultra violet) module performs the crucial task of hardening the adhesive that is between the two optical components and provides a number of advantages, including long life and consistent UV power, lower lifetime costs, and lower temperature at adhesive site.
Our optical test suite is the most comprehensive in the industry and custom tests can be created. Whether you use the tests for in-process testing and characterization or post-process final testing and validation, the tests are state-of-the-art and consistent, with a cycle time matched to your production.
This technology accurately measures the glue gap in each unit, and dynamically compensates for glue shrinkage during the alignment process, allowing for even greater precision in the final product. This is an optional technology.
The advanced quality control measures include verification of volume and position of adhesive, temperature monitoring, target intensity measurements, fixture tracking using bar code verification, part serial number tracking, UV light measurements, and bond gap measurements. These are all optional technologies.
