Teledyne DALSA is a Canadian company specializing in the design and manufacture of specialized electronic cameras.

The company was founded in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada in 1980 by imaging pioneer Dr. Savvas Chamberlain, a former Professor in Electrical Engineering at the University of Waterloo. Originally the company concentrated in developing and generating technology in the area of charge coupled device (CCD) image sensors. Since then the company has grown into an industry leader in semiconductor technology, employing approximately 700 worldwide with revenue of more than $100 Million. The company was capitalised in November 1984 and went public on the Toronto Stock Exchange in May 1996. Headquarters remain in Waterloo, but Teledyne DALSA has expanded operations into Colorado Springs, Colorado; Billerica, Massachusetts; San Juan Capistrano and Fremont, California; Bromont and Montreal, Quebec; and Eindhoven, Netherlands, in addition to sales offices in Germany and Japan.

Teledyne DALSA designs and manufactures a variety of digital imaging products for various industrial applications. Notably, many of the cameras employed in the most recent unmanned mission to Mars were manufactured by Teledyne DALSA. Teledyne DALSA is also one of the only digital camera producers that has a vertically integrated supply chain. Teledyne DALSA owns the wafer forge where its imaging sensors are manufactured and boasts to be one of the few companies that uses both CCD and CMOS sensors depending upon the application. In 2005 Teledyne DALSA acquired Canadian framegrabber and camera manufacturer Coreco (based in Montreal). In doing so, Teledyne DALSA added software, acquisition and further gigabit Ethernet technology to its portfolio. Teledyne DALSA has most recently entered the field of digital cinema, having designed and built the Origin camera system.

In 2007, Teledyne DALSA was named one of Canada's Top 100 Employers, as published in Maclean's magazine, one of a handful of manufacturing companies to receive this honour.

Teledyne DALSA was acquired by Teledyne in 2010. The Transaction was close on February 12th 2011..
