alternative solution to expensive in-line AOI system, due to its affordable
semi-automatic design. It comes with monochrome CCD camera with three colors
RGB (Red, Green, Blue) LEDs for either gray scale or color decisions.
can inspect solder bridging of ICís, parts placed wrong, existence of parts,
polarity check for capacitor / diode / transistor, confirmation silk screen
printing of IC and chips, mis-orientation of connector, connector color
check, poor alignment of parts, parallel parts check, existence of bypass
capacitor, curve of IC leads...and much more.
operating system is based on PC Windows NT open architecture, unlike other
systems in the market using Mac or Unix based which are very complicated and
closed system. Connecting to your network will be much simpler and easier
due to the PC Windows NT O/S design.
software design of
not use any complicated part libraries to develop inspection program. It
adopts simple and easy programming method by using mouse click. The
programmer can adjust threshold value on each parts to decide the level of
The programmer can even program it to accept different vendors on the same
Programming and production inspection time are unbelievably fast. For a 200
part application as an example, it takes about 2 hours for programming and
around 10 seconds for production inspection.
you have completed production inspection, the system will display actual
board image on the screen with red arrow pointer to pinpoint the location of
failed parts. By a mouse click, it displays image of fail parts on the
screen side by side with master image for comparison so that operator can
confirm all fail parts or repair boards faster.
can be used before / after reflow oven and wave soldering machine.
When it combines with ICT tester, it improves test / inspection coverage
especially the test coverage on ICT tester is very low due to missing
testability on the board.
