Photon Dynamics Inc., a provider of integrated yield management solutions for the display, electronics and glass markets, has completed the acquisition of Korea-based Akcron Corp. Ltd.

Akcron is a manufacturer of automated optical inspection equipment, image processing hardware and software algorithms, and LCD backlight inverters for flat panel displays. Photon Dynamics believes that this acquisition will expand its product and technology portfolio to address LCD cell and module inspection capabilities, increase regional service to provide development applications, and further enhance its established Asian Pacific infrastructure.

"Combined with our current FPD array and automated optical inspection (AOI) solutions, this additional technology will enable Photon Dynamics to provide customers with a broader suite of integrated yield management solutions," stated Jeff Hawthorne, president of Photon Dynamics' Image Processing Systems Division. "This acquisition further demonstrates our commitment to a global strategy and expanded investment in the Asia Pacific region," he added.
