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: Nanocellulose for novel implants: Ears from the 3D-printer

Cellulose obtained from wood has amazing material properties. Empa researchers are now equipping the biodegradable material with additional functionalities to produce implants for cartilage diseases using 3D printing.

It all starts with an ear. Empa researcher Michael Hausmann removes the object shaped like a human ear from the 3D printer and explains:

Im Focus: Elucidating the Atomic Mechanism of Superlubricity

The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants. Based on this knowledge, it is now possible to formulate design rules for supra lubricating layer-lubricant combinations. The results are presented in an article in Nature Communications, volume 10.

One of the most important prerequisites for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is minimizing friction. Research and industry have been dedicated...

Im Focus: Mission completed – EU partners successfully test new technologies for space robots in Morocco

Just in time for Christmas, a Mars-analogue mission in Morocco, coordinated by the Robotics Innovation Center of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) as part of the SRC project FACILITATORS, has been successfully completed. SRC, the Strategic Research Cluster on Space Robotics Technologies, is a program of the European Union to support research and development in space technologies. From mid-November to mid-December 2018, a team of more than 30 scientists from 11 countries tested technologies for future exploration of Mars and Moon in the desert of the Maghreb state.

Close to the border with Algeria, the Erfoud region in Morocco – known to tourists for its impressive sand dunes – offered ideal conditions for the four-week...

Im Focus: Physicists uncover new competing state of matter in superconducting material

A team of experimentalists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory and theoreticians at University of Alabama Birmingham discovered a remarkably long-lived new state of matter in an iron pnictide superconductor, which reveals a laser-induced formation of collective behaviors that compete with superconductivity.

"Superconductivity is a strange state of matter, in which the pairing of electrons makes them move faster," said Jigang Wang, Ames Laboratory physicist and...
