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: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...

Im Focus: Water is not the same as water

Water molecules exist in two different forms with almost identical physical properties. For the first time, researchers have succeeded in separating the two forms to show that they can exhibit different chemical reactivities. These results were reported by researchers from the University of Basel and their colleagues in Hamburg in the scientific journal Nature Communications.

From a chemical perspective, water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms. It is less well known that water exists in two...
