Viscom has acquired the full MX family of IR inspection systems from Phoseon Technology.

The MX product family is a series of inspection systems that incorporate infrared (IR) semiconductor light sources. These sources provide efficient output in a narrow spectral band and are used to see through silica wafers in many semiconductor applications.

The acquisition opens up a new market for Viscom. It is hoped that Viscom will be able to use its worldwide infrastructure to develop Phoseon's Si-Thru technology.

‘This agreement makes excellent sense for both companies,' said Bill Cortelyou, CEO of Phoseon Technology. ‘Phoseon can now focus on its core competency in solid state lighting systems while Viscom can leverage its current strong market position and worldwide infrastructure in electronics inspection systems into the semiconductor industry.’

Viscom and Phoseon will work together to make sure the transition has no effect on customers. They have also agreed work closely on the development of further IR light system technology for inspection applications.
