The processes in electronics manufacturing are undergoing a major transformation. Digitisation, networking and artificial intelligence are more demanded than ever along the product life cycle of electronic assemblies. GÖPEL electronic will show inspection solutions (AOI-AXI-SPI-IBV) and Embedded JTAG Solutions that meet the requirements of the future electronics at the SMTconnect in Nuremberg from 10 to 12 May 2022.
AI Advisor is a new artificial intelligence-based assistance function for verification and repair stations. The innovative AI software module serves to make the final human evaluation and classification of assemblies sorted out as faulty more reliable. For each defect on a PCB that requires an operator decision, the AI makes its own decision and requests a re-evaluation if the AI comes to a different conclusion than the operator. This mechanism can be used to prevent an assembly from being subsequently declared a pass assembly, when it actual has a defect that was also detected by the AOI or AXI system.
The new AOI system software PILOT AOI 6.8 will present the possibility of creating and optimising inspection programmes with the help of a digital twin. The special feature is that no real assembled PCB needs to be available for this. The software will be presented on the Basic Line · 3D and Vario Line · 3D systems. The Vario Line will be presented in the latest generation with a new 3D camera module. The module's outstanding optical quality enables the best images to be taken of critical surface conditions and reduces pseudo defects. The THT inspection system THT Line · 3D has also been further developed. In the latest version, the 3D measurement of THT assemblies is now also possible from above and thus a simultaneous, double-sided 3D inspection.
In the Embedded JTAG Solutions division, the CION-LX Module FXT/32, a new module with 32 single-ended I/O channels and 8 differential channels, will be shown. A new entry-level boundary-scan controller called Pico TAP ATE is particularly suitable for integration into flying probe systems. A new SYSTEM CASCON integration package for the TRI TR5001 SII series will also be launched.
The BARCUDA VP230 is a complete turnkey solution for flexible testing and programming of electronic assemblies with VPC interface. Toghether with JULIET for professional, fully production-ready JTAG/Boundary Scan testing it will also be part of GÖPEL electronic's trade fair presence at SMTconnect 2022.
