Canon sales to market NLine semiconductor testing equipment

October 17, 2001 – Tokyo, Japan – Canon Sales Co. has signed a contract with nLine Corp. to market the US-based semiconductor testing equipment manufacturer’s products in Japan.

Canon Sales aims for first-year sales of 2 billion yen from nLine’s direct digital holography products. These products use both digital and conventional optical cameras to create three-dimensional images to verify defects or dust on the surface of semiconductor wafers, according to the company.

Each device is priced at about 700 million yen for a standard configured unit. Canon Sales already markets inspection systems offered by ADE Corp. By newly signing on with nLine, Canon Sales will expand the lineup of products it provides.
