Fast, Easy Solution Improves Quality and Productivity

Anaheim, CA February 6, 2006 - ViTechnology�, a leading worldwide provider of advanced solutions to improve the yield of electronics assembly, has enhanced the inspection process with the introduction of its Vision 2006 software platform for its full line of AOI (automated optical inspection) equipment. The operating system will be introduced at the upcoming APEX 2006 in Anaheim, CA, February 8 to 10, 2006.

The Vision 2006 software suite is built on a modular architecture, allowing the selection of specific tools for specific applications bringing greater versatility. The platform employs several components, such as CAD data import, line quality

management tools, program optimization, repair tools and embedded or external SPC tools. The platform supports a wide range of applications, including post-print 2D/3D, pre-reflow, post-reflow, post-wave and backplane inspection.

"Vision 2006's integrated components form a framework that greatly increases manufacturing productivity and quality management," said Mark Norris, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing. "On top of all of its advantages,

including fast programming time and advanced process control, the Vision 2006 software suite offers a redesigned graphical user interface for ever better ease-of-use."

Vision 2006 features ViTechnology�'s new user-friendly Match Maker tool. This library search engine is linked to an extensive standard library of Vectoral Imaging based models, which helps create programs in a timely, efficient manner. ViTechnology� frequently provides upgrades of the standard library to its customers. The library uses new, advanced vision algorithms.

The new operating system comes equipped with the field-proven Profilertm technology, which enhances post-reflow capabilities. The patent-pending Profilertm technology uses highly robust algorithms in combination with a custom-built, proprietary color lighting source to detect lifted leads, total or partial lack of solder, impurities and co-planarity defects better than multiple cameras systems.

Vision 2006 includes embedded real-time SPC tools and closed-loop solutions to provide advanced process control and improve the yield of manufacturing lines. In addition, ViTechnology� has developed VieWeb, an exclusive web-based data mining system. This powerful tool enables remote monitoring capability with automatic report generation. Reports are customizable and ensure 100% traceability, for analyzing root causes of defects.

"After having introduced Vectoral Imaging, which has changed the way inspection is used in the electronics industry," Norris added, "we introduced the upgradeability concept into AOI, offering our existing and future customers a path to grow within their companies. The Vision 2006 platform is a new improvement in the SMT inspection market, reinforcing ViTechnology's technological leadership."

Vision 2006 is compatible with all ViTechnology� inspections systems, from entry level to high-end systems. Current users can upgrade to Vision 2006 to take advantage of the enhanced capabilities.
