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: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...

Im Focus: Lining up surprising behaviors of superconductor with one of the world's strongest magnets

Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur

What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...

Im Focus: World record: Fastest 3-D tomographic images at BESSY II

The quality of materials often depends on the manufacturing process. In casting and welding, for example, the rate at which melts solidify and the resulting microstructure of the alloy is important. With metallic foams as well, it depends on exactly how the foaming process takes place. To understand these processes fully requires fast sensing capability. The fastest 3D tomographic images to date have now been achieved at the BESSY II X-ray source operated by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.

Dr. Francisco Garcia-Moreno and his team have designed a turntable that rotates ultra-stably about its axis at a constant rotational speed. This really depends...

Im Focus: A molecular switch may serve as new target point for cancer and diabetes therapies

If certain signaling cascades are misregulated, diseases like cancer, obesity and diabetes may occur. A mechanism recently discovered by scientists at the Leibniz- Forschungsinstitut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP) in Berlin and at the University of Geneva has a crucial influence on such signaling cascades and may be an important key for the future development of therapies against these diseases. The results of the study have just been published in the prestigious scientific journal 'Molecular Cell'.

Cell growth and cell differentiation as well as the release and efficacy of hormones such as insulin depend on the presence of lipids. Lipids are small...
