Verifer HR High-Resolution X-Ray Inspection Solution Under $60K

Rosemont, Ill. ATExpo (Sept 28, 2004) - FocalSpot, Inc (, a provider of advanced BGA/SMT inspection and rework solutions to the SMT electronic manufacturers industry, today announced the their newest innovation, the Verifer-HR, FSX-090 a high-resolution x-ray system that handles large bare or populated PCB assemblies up to 16 x 18 or component packages down to 0201. The Verifer-HR is a powerful (90KV) yet affordable (650X) x-ray system designed for fast intuitive operation. It supports a broad range of inspection applications from detailed viewing of internal semiconductor interconnections (wire-bonds/die-attach) to general solder joint analysis and rework verification.

The system's 5-micron sealed x-ray source and high-resolution 2/4 Image Intensifier provides superb image resolution, with greater than 650X magnification, making it ideally suited for inspection of BGA's, CSP's and flip-chip packages. The 90kV microfocus x-ray source provides more than enough power to penetrate challenging packages such as: Ceramic Column Grid Arrays, BGA with metal lids or heat sinks and devices with RF shielding.

The Verifer-HR is self-contained, and with a footprint of only 32 x 34 it can easily be moved (rolled) to where ever it is needed (i.e., production floor, prototype lab, rework area, etc.). Each system comes complete with image enhancement and defect analysis software, flat panel monitor, current Pentium) computer running Windows) XP and plugs into a standard 120VAC outlet.

"X-ray imaging systems play a vital role in providing failure analysis, prototype validation and manufacturing process setup data; but cost and complex operation have often been a deterrent to broader market utilization." Stated Frank Silva, FocalSpot's Vice President of Sales. Continued Mr. Silva, "Reducing the system cost and operational complexity was the basic design premise behind FocalSpot's Verifer Series of x-ray inspection systems - they are truly affordable multipurpose x-ray inspection solutions with exceptional performance and value for less than $60K and the easiest system of this type to learn and use."
