Goepel Electronics will present their next free webinar series, “Farewell to false calls resulting from reflections and shadows! Fast, full-coverage 2D/3D X-ray In-Line Inspection” Thursday, October 13th, 2016 at 11 AM EST.
Those that deal with Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) of solder joints on PCBs are all too familiar with the discussion of false calls rate and test escape rates. Traditional AOI systems work with illumination of varying wavelengths and directions. Depending on the surfaces, the reflections and shadows visible in the camera image are properties used for a pass/fail determination. Changes in the solder resist, differing strong reflections from pins and solder joints as well as flux residue and slight contaminations influence such reflections and shadows – one reason for occurring false calls and escapes.
The webinar illustrates the usage of full-coverage X-ray inspection of all solder joints – whether visible or hidden. The result: fewest false calls and escapes. An integrated AOI module in the AXOI system X-Line · 3D handles the inspection of optical properties such as polarity and labelling which are not visible with X-ray.
Furthermore, possibilities and limits of failure detection will be shown in the webinar with many sample images.
As part of the agenda, you will learn more about the benefits of X-ray inspection (AXI) in comparison with Automated Optical Inspection (AOI). The possibilities and limits of failure detection for an AXI system will be discussed as well as the benefits of the combination of both inspection methods (AXI and AOI). Failure scenarios on QFN, BGA, THT, SO-IC- and QFP package types will also be covered. System concept of the AXOI system X-Line · 3D will be reviewed in detail.
