Viscom to Exhibit at IPC APEX EXPO 2018


Reading time ( words)

Viscom today announced plans to exhibit at the IPC APEX EXPO 2018, scheduled to take place February 27 - March 1, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center in California. Constantly at the forefront of innovation for AOI, AXI and SPI, the company will show its X8011-II and X7056-II 3D X-ray inspection systems, along with the S3088 ultra gold, S3088 ultra chrome and S3088 SPI in Booth #1508.

X8011-II PCB X-ray inspection

In modern SMD production, components such as BGAs, QFNs or QFPs are gaining ground. Because their connectors are mostly hidden, many solder joints can only be reliably checked with an X-ray inspection. The X8011-II PCB high resolution X-ray inspection system was developed especially for these tasks. Typical applications are, for example, the inspection of electronic assemblies and components, quality assurance in power electronics, or non-destructive special inspections.

X7056-II automatic 3D X-ray inspection

The X7056-II automatic 3D X-ray inspection system features extremely high throughput and superb image quality for the requirements in high-end electronics production. This new AXI in-line system can ensure precise inspection of hidden solder joints and components in high-volume production. It is equipped with the xFastFlow transport module, which cuts printed circuit board changing times. With this feature, up to three boards can be processed at the same time. The new handling design also means that significantly larger board sizes can be inspected and the scope of angled radiation is extended.

S3088 ultra chrome 3D AOI

The S3088 ultra chrome addresses the growing demand for reliable and easy-to-use 3D AOI technology at an economical price. Viscom’s powerful approach is a combination of high quality, cost-effective machine design and standardized features. One orthogonal and eight angled view cameras provide full 3D defect detection coverage for components and solder joints on PCBs. The orthogonal optical resolution is switchable between 20 and 10 µm/pixel and also ready-made to inspect small components.

S3088 ultra gold 3D AOI

As one of the leading manufacturers of high quality systems for optical and X-ray inspection in electronics manufacturing, Viscom is constantly driving new innovations. The central innovation on the S3088 ultra gold is the 3D camera module XMplus with more than 120 megapixels. This key element of the S3088 ultra gold is designed for one purpose: high performance. The image data rate is up to 3.6 gigapixels per second.

S3088 SPI inspection

The award-winning S3088 SPI inspection system combines the advantages of market-leading Viscom AOI systems with powerful 3D SPI sensor technology and inspects the solder paste deposits with the highest possible speed and precision. Even the most demanding assemblies with CSPs or micro BGAs and pad sizes of 01005 are reliably inspected.

Under the Hood: Solder Joint Reliability

05/21/2018 | Burton Carpenter, NXP Semiconductors Inc.
It has been long established that packages using NSMD BGA pads were more resilient than ones with SMD pads to fatigue-induced solder joint cracks. However, NSMD pads in previous investigations on 292MAPBGA and 416PBGA packages failed sooner in AATS testing due to an alternate failure mode: substrate Cu trace cracks. This article looks into the effects of substrate material and package pad design on solder joint reliability of 0.8 mm pitch BGA.
