Nordson Acquires vivaMOS, Adding Key Sensor Technology to Test and Inspection Business


Reading time ( words)

Nordson Corporation has acquired vivaMOS Ltd., which designs, develops and fabricates high-end large-area complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors for a wide range of X-ray applications. This acquisition builds on Nordson’s strategic objective to enhance its test and inspection capabilities for diverse end markets.

Based in Southampton, U.K., vivaMOS is a leader in its field for high-end large-area CMOS image sensors. The company was established in 2015 as a spinoff from the U.K.’s Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) with the aim of commercializing its X-ray image sensors. Its latest generation sensor offers a unique combination of speed, resolution and low-noise performance, enabling a wide range of X-ray applications.

“We have been collaborating closely with vivaMOS for several years, and we are excited about furthering our relationship and welcoming vivaMOS employees to the Nordson family. This acquisition gives Nordson differentiated and leading-edge X-ray sensor technology that will substantially enhance our product offerings across multiple end markets. Large panel CMOS sensors represent a critical technology for X-ray imaging. We look forward to further integrating the industry-leading sensor technology and expertise while developing new test and inspection innovations to offer our customers,” said Jeff Pembroke, Executive Vice President, Advanced Technology Solutions.

vivaMOS will become part of the Test and Inspection division within Nordson’s Advanced Technology Solutions segment. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.

CES 2020: The Intelligence of Things

01/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Show week for CES 2020 starts well ahead of the actual exhibition dates because it is huge. The organizers of CES state that there are more than 4,400 exhibiting companies and nearly three million net square feet of exhibit space. On the floor, you can find 307 of the 2018 Fortune Global 500 companies. Over the week, I-Connect007 Editors Dan Feinberg and Nolan Johnson will bring you some of the most interesting news, products, and announcements from 5G to IoT, semiconductor developments, autonomous vehicle technology, interconnect, fabrication materials, and much more.
