New iNEMI Project on AI Enhancement to AOI for PCBA


Reading time ( words)

Interested in smart manufacturing? iNEMI is starting a new project looking into the benefits that artificial intelligence (AI) may bring to automated optical inspection (AOI) of printed circuit board assemblies. The Investigation of AI Enhancement to AOI for PCBA project will investigate the current use of AI for AOI, develop and establish common performance metrics to evaluate the AI value-add to AOI capabilities, and provide recommendations to the industry on opportunities for future improvement and implementation. 

By working together with EMS and OEM users, AOI equipment vendors can better understand what to evaluate and how to apply AI technologies for their existing AOI solutions. The ultimate goal of this iNEMI project is to drive inspection efficiency and accuracy and, at the same time, leverage AI-enhanced technologies to reduce manual inspection verification and mitigate the defect escape risk.

Initiatives like the IPC Connected Factory Exchange (CFX) and IPC-Hermes-9852 underpin efforts within the industry to develop standards and help create a smart factory. These M2M communication standards, guided in part by Industry 4.0, are altering the manufacturing process by improving metrics such as first pass yield and throughput by applying autonomous process adjustments.

A limitation of many 3D optical inspection systems is the cycle time typically associated with processing millions of pixels to reconstruct a full 3D image using data captured from multiple channels. There should not be a compromise between 3D inspection and throughput. A successful inspection deployment should provide oversight for the process, not compromise, interrupt or slow that process.
