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: Optical Nanoscope Allows Imaging of Quantum Dots

Physicists have developed a technique based on optical microscopy that can be used to create images of atoms on the nanoscale. In particular, the new method allows the imaging of quantum dots in a semiconductor chip. Together with colleagues from the University of Bochum, scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute reported the findings in the journal Nature Photonics.

Microscopes allow us to see structures that are otherwise invisible to the human eye. However, conventional optical microscopes cannot be used to image...

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
