Waterloo, Canada, and Lachen, Switzerland, May 8, 2002 -- DALSA Corporation and Photonfocus AG have entered into a co-operative agreement for world-wide commercialization of the LINLOG wide dynamic range CMOS Image Sensor technology in cameras for Industrial Machine Vision and other applications. The LINLOG technology from Photonfocus enables new machine vision applications where high speeds, programmable region of interest or very wide dynamic range are essential. Typical applications include welding, laser metrology, traffic monitoring and other uses with wide-ranging illumination levels.

The companies will work together over the coming months to introduce camera products worldwide under DALSA's brand. For more information about DALSA's VFM products, visit http://vfm.dalsa.com. For more information about the LINLOG technology, visit http://www.photonfocus.com.

Photonfocus was founded in April 2001 as a spin-off from CSEM, the Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology. Photonfocus is at the forefront of CMOS technology and designs CMOS sensors as well as CMOS cameras. Photonfocus also offers custom and semi-custom design solutions. Photonfocus is rapidly expanding its business with the anticipated shift to CMOS imaging technology. Its main target markets are the machine vision market, security and surveillance markets and the automotive sector.

DALSA is an international high performance semiconductor and electronics company that designs, develops, manufactures, and markets high value semiconductors, digital imaging solution products, and wafer foundry services. DALSA's core competence is in specialized integrated circuit design, electronics, and highly engineered semiconductor wafer processing. Products include image sensors, electronic digital cameras, and semiconductor wafers for use in MEMS, power semiconductors and mixed signal CMOS chips.

DALSA's digital imaging products are designed to replace human vision and act as high performance "electronic eyes" in machine vision. DALSA's semiconductor products steer telecom traffic, sense and actuate the environment in automotive and fiber-optic telecom, manage power in electronic systems, and are at the heart of the silicon chips used in many other applications.
