Pixelteq has begun construction at its Largo, Florida facility to accommodate the growth in its OEM spectral sensor and micro-patterned filter business. The multi-million dollar investment provides clean-room upgrades and additional capacity for wafer-level optical coating and patterning, building on the company’s micro-patterning technology for optical filters and sensors.
‘Clients are using our PixelSensor multispectral sensors to detect and quantify problems in more portable application-specific devices,’ said Randel Mercer, vice president of business development. ‘As next-generation sensors migrate to smaller devices and pixels with higher resolutions, the precision and cleanliness of optical coatings becomes more critical.
'This upgrade combines state-of-the-art processes with manufacturing capacity to serve growing OEM clients who need to scale miniaturised spectral sensors and wafer-level optics to volume production.’
