Saki to Demo Advanced 3D AOI Capabilities at NEPCON China


Reading time ( words)

Saki Corporation will demonstrate the advanced capabilities and new extra component detection (ECD) feature of its BF-3Di 3D automated optical inspection (AOI) systems at NEPCON China on April 25-27, 2017 at the Shanghai World EXPO Exhibition & Convention Center in Shanghai, China, in booth 1J25.

Saki's ECD algorithm inspects for stray components, solder balls, and foreign materials across the entire surface of the circuit board and can detect objects of 200 microns or less, thereby eliminating these defects. ECD, coupled with the benefits of the complete scan of the PCB by Saki's line scan technology, provides further assurance of product quality. Saki's ECD is incorporated into both its 2D and 3D AOI systems.

Saki's systems handle all types of boards, including extra-large (686x870mm) PCBs. The BF-3 Di series uses multi-phase ring lighting and Saki's proprietary coaxial top light illumination to measure the solder height and accurately reconstruct the fillet geometry of the image. With the newly developed 4-way side cameras, it accurately detects J-leads, QFN packages, and connector assemblies via 4-way projection technology. These systems measure heights from 0-20mm with 1µm resolution and achieve full automation with very low false calls and zero escapes. In addition, Saki's BF-3 Di software reduces library creation time by over 50% when compared to conventional AOI machines.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
