Spectra-Physics® Launches 15 W UV Laser at Laser World of Photonics China

• New Talon™ 355-15 delivers >300 mJ, 15 W UV power with unparalleled reliability and cost

Santa Clara, CA - March 17, 2014 - Spectra-Physics®, a Newport company, introduces Talon 355-15, a new addition to its Talon family of disruptive cost-performance Q-switched diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) lasers. The new laser delivers >15 W UV power, >300 µJ pulse energy, wide-repetition-rate range of 0 to 500 kHz, and excellent beam profile and stability. With high reliability, lowest cost-of-ownership and excellent performance, Talon 355-15 is perfect for powering 24/7 manufacturing of PCBs, semiconductors, LEDs, ceramics, flat panel displays, solar cells, glass, and many other devices and materials.


"With Talon 355-15, Spectra-Physics, the number one supplier of UV lasers, once again advances the capability of UV lasers for demanding micromachining applications," says Scott White, senior manager, product marketing for Spectra-Physics. "With its enabling cost-performance, Talon is compelling for a wide range of applications, and we are experiencing incredible demand as we rapidly ramp volume production."

Available in >15, >12 and >6 W UV and >20 W green versions, Talon is an "It's in the Box™" laser, combining power supply and laser head into a single, common rugged package for simple system integration and easy intermixing between models to achieve specific end customer requirements. Talon has passed extensive environmental qualification testing, and each laser is subjected to rigorous production tests to ensure high reliability for operation in 24/7 applications.

Spectra-Physics' new Talon 355-15 UV laser will be featured at Laser World of Photonics China in Shanghai, March 18-20, 2014. Please visit Spectra-Physics in hall E2, booth #2400 for a demonstration. For more information, visit www.spectra-physics.com/Talon.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
