CyberOptics Corporation (Nasdaq: CYBE) announces that it has been awarded a 2012 NPI Award in the category of Test & Inspection - AOI for its QX100™ AOI Tabletop System equipped with AI2 next-generation image analysis software. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, February 28, 2012 ceremony that took place at the San Diego Convention Center in California.
Premiering in 2008, Circuits Assembly magazine’s NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
The QX100™ redefines tabletop inspection by combining the performance of an in-line inspection system with the flexibility of a tabletop system. The system features CyberOptics’ unique image acquisition technology, the Strobed Inspection Module (SIM), and is capable of inspecting component sizes down to 01005.
The sleek QX100™ is powered by AI2 (Autonomous Image Interpretation), a patented next-generation image analysis technique evolved from CyberOptics’ industry-proven SAM technology, and takes advantage of the latest advances in processor architecture. AI2 is a robust statistical modeling engine that provides superior defect detection capabilities, the lowest false call rates and improved clarity of defect identification through an Active Pixel Marking feature. A single workflow setup makes the QX100™ an ideal choice for high-mix environments with the capability to adapt seamlessly to low mix-high volume production modes. Also, programs created on QX100 are 100 percent compatible with CyberOptics’ in-line systems.
