Viscom Releases Inline X-ray System X7056-II BO for High-Throughput Wire Bond Inspection


Reading time ( words)

The role of power electronics is becoming increasingly critical in the automotive sector, especially for electric drives. Smooth functioning and long service life for power electronics ensure the necessary product safety and also the intended energy efficiency of electric vehicles and hybrids. New sensors and cameras are also providing even better protection for vehicles during operation. The new Viscom X7056-II BO system, which inspects bond wires optically and radiographically in an inline system at maximum inspection depth, ensures comprehensive inspection of power semiconductors and encapsulated sensor elements alike.

The new X7056-II BO inline system effectively combines optical wire bond control with X-ray inspection to reliably and precisely inspect wire bonds – even enclosed ones – and concealed solder joints beneath chips. The unique combination of AOI and AXI in a single system ensures high-throughput handling to meet the most stringent cycle time requirements at a maximum inspection depth.

Tapes and wires, whether thick or thin, are inspected, as is the soldering quality of the dies. The high-resolution sensor technology means the scope of inspection covers all bond points and wires, as well as open and concealed connection points, so that the quality of wire runs, dies and component layers, damage and position deviations as well as voids in surface soldering can be detected with absolute certainty. The standard library contains all relevant inspection patterns for die bonds, ball-wedge, wedge-wedge and security bonds for very effective inspection program generation.

Viscom’s new bond inspection system offers an ideal solution for the increasing demand for X-ray inspection in the bond area. The system is designed to be used in the production of high-end electronics and is ideal for installation in final assembly for power electronics, circuits, sensor construction and packaging to ensure 100% quality control. The Viscom range is rounded off by powerful verification and evaluation of statistical process control.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine—Continuous Improvement: As Simple as X = Xc – 1

01/04/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
X=Xc – 1 is a conceptual equation for continuous improvement. You define X and work to reduce it by a factor of 1. This could be one work hour, one process step, one day less in a cycle, and so on. We recently met with Dr. Ron Lasky to discuss the concept of X=Xc – 1 and get his advice on generating enthusiasm among readers and the next generation about continuous improvement. As this discussion illustrates, many process improvements are small in scale, not yearlong, major efforts.

SMTA Europe Solder Finish Webinar Addresses Defects Causes and Cures

12/14/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
“What is your most common PCB problem?” A survey conducted by Bob Willis had revealed finish solderability to be the predominant contender, and it was clear that the choice of solderable finish applied to surface mount boards could have a significant effect on the assembly yield and cost of the final circuit. SMTA Europe organised an informative and enlightening webinar this month entitled “Guide to PCB Solder Finishes—Process Defects Causes and Cures,” with soldering specialist Bob Willis as presenter.
