Automatic X-ray inspection - New system generation with submicron-resolution and 2 Megapixels digital camera

16.06.2006
phoenix|x-ray Systems + Services introduced its newest X-ray inspection system, the microme|x. This submicron, high-resolution system is optimized for manual and semi-automated solder joint inspection of BGA, CSP, MLF and QFP components. With an integrated 2 Megapixels camera, open 160kV or 180kV submicron X-ray tube, a detail detectability of <1µm and total magnification of up to 13.300x, the microme|x is an ideal solution for process control and failure analysis of PCB assemblies bringing high-end quality inspection technology to contract electronic manufacturers (CEM) and OEMs.
Delivering more tools than comparably priced systems, the microme|x comes standard with phoenix|x-ray’s new inspection software, quality|assurance 2006. This powerful software tool automates the inspection of the PCB assemblies, making pass/fail decisions for BGA, CSP, MLF and QFP without operator interpretations, reducing the numbers of false identifications while speeding throughput and improving production efficiency. In addition, an exceptionally powerful algorithm toolbox XE² offers the user even more solutions for application testing.

The microme|x comes standard with a 2 Megapixels camera that surpasses the typical of 1,3 Megapixels resolution of other systems. Combined with the open 160kV or 180kV submicron X-ray tube, the microme|x can detect errors less <1µm (compared to 2 µm) with magnification of up to 13.300x.

The microme|x possesses high precision manipulation through its 360° rotation axis and the ability for oblique views up to 70°. A scanning area of 18”x14” allows samples with a size up to 26.75” x 25” (680mm x 635mm) with weights of up to 11 lbs (5kg).

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
