ViTrox Technologies, provider of automated vision inspection systems and equipment for the semiconductor and electronics packaging industries, was awarded a 2013 Global Technology Award in the category of Best Product – Asia for its V810 XXL In-Line 3D Advanced X-ray Inspection System (AXI) at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany, during Productronica.

ViTrox’s V810 XXL provides the fastest inspection speed and widest test coverage with four key technologies for speed/throughput: loading/unloading optimisation, dynamic scan path technology, progressive alignment technology and machine operation optimisation.

It can inspect boards up to 26-in x 38-in and provides the support for boards up to 500mils thick weighing up to 15kgs. V810 XXL is further enhanced with Head-in-Pillow (HIP) and Intelligent Voiding inspection capabilities, which yield zero escape and low false fail rates.

Additionally, the in-line system provides multiple slices of PTH images (>10 slices), and is currently known as the best in the market for this technology.

V810 XXL’s technology is based on Digital Tomosynthesis methodology. The advanced Digital Reconstruction Technology reconstructs x-ray images from multiple angled cameras and effectively separates the top- and bottom-side of the board images clearly. Proprietary Hybrid Auto Focus technology enables the system to intelligently focus on desired z-height without any mechanical movement from x-ray or stage, significantly reducing any measurement uncertainties.
