Saint-Egréve, France - Vi TECHNOLOGY will be represented with its Chinese Agents to exhibit AOI solutions to reduce defective PCBAs at Nepcon South China Shenzhen from August 31st to September 2nd.

American Tec at booth 2F30 will demonstrate our latest Selective Super-resolution technology based on 5K equipment. WKK at booth 1G15 will focus on our K Series with our 2K and 7K DL solutions. Ascentex at booth 2G40 will present our Selective 3D AOI solution on a 5K series.

Increasing miniaturization and higher throughput is a recipe for success in mobile devices and computer industries. Vi TECHNOLOGY has always been the supplier of choice to offer both high accuracy and high speed inspection solutions. This competitive advantage is once more renewed through a competitive product range offering.

Vi TECHNOLOGY® Selective Super-resolution technology expands current K Series inspection capabilities for high throughput and miniaturized applications. State-of-the-art algorithms reconstruct high-resolution images from several images at nominal resolution. A below 10% Gage R&R is systematically achieved on 01005 package type. This technology is commercially available to our existing PREMIUM customers on the latest Vision software platform when a light on-site hardware upgrade is done. Combined with the proven well-known Vi TECHNOLOGY® Vectoral Imaging technology, it brings the best to AOI customers. Cycle-time performance is optimized and depth of field is unchanged using the one-click Selective Super-resolution function.

Vi TECHNOLOGY® Selective 3D technology opens the path to the 3rd dimension to AOI. This feature allows the detection of coplanarity defects on flat surface components and avoids the installation of multi-camera systems. This option provides accurate and repeatable tilt and coplanarity measure on ICs, connectors and passive components, while inspecting their PCBAs without affecting the cycle time. Used for all applications, but mainly costly and high reliability end-user applications, in the Automotive, Industrial and Infrastructure segments, defects must be identified. The issue is that most of those defects can be transparent to the electrical tests as well as 2D optical inspection. Because of this, additional and costly process-steps are required to eliminate them from production. Having this capability within the AOI provides significant savings and fast Return-On-Investment. The Selective 3D AOI technology is available on new machines or as an upgrade on existing installed 3K and 5K platforms.

Vision2009, the new integrated software suite, goes a step further in simplifying programming.

The new intuitive “Wizards” guide users through each step of program creation and optimization, reducing the need for advanced training. Vision2009 is based on Vi TECHNOLOGY’s modular software platform and accommodates all AOI application options including: 2D Post Print, Mixed Mode, Pre Reflow, Post Reflow, Post Wave, backplane inspection, OCV and OCR. The suite also encompasses full offline programming capability, an optimization tool, centralized common database, cross platform program transportability, review/repair station, data mining system…
