This presentation gives an overview on the increasing challenge to achieve miniature camera modules in mobile devices high production and assembly yields. The presentation will review the factors that cause the increase in the challenge complexity, and how Optical Image Enhancement (OIE) technologies are employed to meet overcome it. It begins with the reason behind the increase in achieving high manufacturing yield challenges and goes on to review the various solutions. It uses multiple real data examples and graphical illustrations to demonstrate the issues at hand.

Attendees will learn:

  • What are the challenges of achieving good manufacturing yields in the dynamic mobile devices camera module environment
  • The trends that increase this challenge.
  • How OIE technologies are actually employed to overcome the high production yield challenge
  • Specific numeric examples of the contemporary industry best practice.
