PerkinElmer Illumination and Detection Solutions Business is Now Excelitas Technologies Corp.

I missed this news from two months ago: On Nov 29, 2010 the former Illumination and Detection Solutions (IDS) business of PerkinElmer was formally re-launched as Excelitas Technologies Corp.

Now owned by private equity firm Veritas Capital, Excelitas Technologies has 3,000 employees, manufacturing operations in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia and projected 2010 revenues of over $300 million. The new company continues production of Reticon CCD line and other specialty imagers.

Thanks to DG for letting me know!

  1. A few more things of interest that probably don't meet our esteemed moderator's standards of verifiability:

    There seems to be no one left to do any additional work on the former Reticon products so they will likely fade away. They are all built in various outside fabs now.

    The sale did not include the design and fab facilities for the amorphous silicon flat panel imagers.

    The photon detection new product activities appear to be concentrated now on the various products build in Wiesbaden, Germany. This is the home of the thermopile, APD, CPM and various other single-element and (very) small array detectors.
