microme|x - automatic X-ray inspection at its best.

12.10.2005


The new microme|x from phoenix|x-ray


On the occasion of Productronica 2005 phoenix|x-ray will be presenting a world premiere the new highly resolving X-ray inspections system microme|x.

A novelty to the industry phoenix|x-ray has developed a system that combines all features for an optimum comprehensive inspection of printed circuit board assemblies. The microme|x disposes of an extra large scanning area of 20" x 24", a highly precise manipulation unit with 360° rotation axis and the approved ovhm technology for oblique views up to 70° at constant magnification. The special value is the combination of these characteristics - for the first time the operator can now inspect large boards with mixed assemblies and acquire real-time oblique views under all angles (0-360°). A typical inspection task could be the analysis of the solder joint pad wetting quality of a centrally placed BGA.

Another outstanding characteristic of the microme|x is the board handling unit connection for fully automated loading of assembled boards in the production plant. In connection with the new inspection software XE² it is thus possible to perform a fully automated inspection and evaluation of BGA, CGA, QFP, THT and other solder joints. In this way multiple inspection tasks can be executed and repeated in an easy, reliable und time-saving manner. An interface for the CAD-data import allows using the original PCB layout in order to teach in the inspection routine. The inspection reports can be transferred to a rework station by means of the repair programme quality|review and thus badly soldered devices can easily be found and replaced or reworked. The SPC* module (*Statistical Process Control) allows the statistical evaluation of the inspection results and the process supervision.



The system possesses over an open microfocus tube with a non-toxic target and over a fully digital image chain with up to 4 Megapixels for a resolution < 1µ and highest image quality, best inspection results guaranteed also for lead-free solder joints.
Different security features, such as the anti-collision system and the low-dose|mode for radiation dose minimisation are dedicated for maximum safety of sensitive samples.

The microme|x has been engineered in accordance with ergonomic measures and the design follows the standards of modern industrial design. The system like all phoenix|x-ray systems comes in a radiation safe cabinet and ready-to-operate for instant use in production or laboratory.

The System will be displayed at Productronica 2005 - Hall A2, Stand 277

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
