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 Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
