CyberOptics® Corporation (NASDAQ: CYBE) today announced that Todd Liberty will present during SMTA South East Asia Technical Conference, scheduled to take place April 14-16, 2015 at the Eastin Hotel in Penang, Malaysia. Mr. Liberty will present the paper entitled “Addressing High Precision Automated Optical Inspection Challenges with Unique 3D Technology Solution” on April 16 at 2:30 p.m.
Driven by the continued decrease in the size of electronics packaging, combined with the increase in density, there is a critical need for highly accurate 3D inspection for defect detection.
Using multi-view 3D sensors and parallel projection, it is possible to capture more of the board at a faster rate as compared to serial image acquisition, which is more time-consuming. Precise 3D image representation can then be generated using sophisticated fusing algorithms that take the multiple captured images and fuses them into one precise 3D image. The result is high-speed 3D inspection.
Multi-reflection suppression (MRS) technology enables highly accurate 3D measurement by meticulously identifying and rejecting reflections caused by shiny components and reflective solder joints. MRS algorithms use a very rich data set from multiple cameras at every location. Combined with sophisticated algorithms that fuse the image data from multiple cameras, multiple reflections are effectively suppressed. This technology is a key building block for achieving high accuracy at production speed in an automated optical inspection (AOI) system.
Mr. Liberty is a 15-year veteran of CyberOptics, currently on assignment in Singapore leading the 3D AOI development project. Previously, he led CyberOptics’ 2D AOI sensor development and was the AOI Product Manager. He has experience writing embedded software for many CyberOptics’ sensor designs, earning him three patents.
