Kasalis on Expansion Path

Camera module alignment systems maker Kasalis announces that it is expanding and will shortly be tripling its staff and almost tripling its office size. "We are thrilled that our products have struck a chord with manufacturers seeking high quality and cost-effective camera module alignment," said Justin Roe, president of Kasalis. "We grew significantly in 2013, and see this growth accelerating in 2014. Our customers are our top focus, and we will be improving services for them by adding yet more innovative, responsive engineers to our staff and increasing production capabilities. Innovation and speed to market is the key to our success, and we want to further enhance that capability."

Kasalis credits its Pixid camera module alignment systems for its impressive growth. The Pixid’s faster cycle time, lower cost, and faster delivery gives customers the advantage of attaining the lowest cost per part for actively aligned small camera modules and array cameras, and the ability to quickly bring new products to market.


  1. Which mobile camera in market that used the active alignmenet method?

  2. Probably the low end front facing.
    Using 6 axis can improve camera yield a bit. Also wafer optics imaging and light sensors maybe.

  3. Actually, active alignment is for high pixel count modules. If the housing isn't perfectly aligned to the sensor, the focal plane will be skewed and the focus won't be uniform. The effect is less noticeable on modules with a large depth of field or fewer pixels.
