FEINFOCUS and GÖPEL join to launch new combined AOI/AXI system

FEINFOCUS and GÖPEL have combined their 30 years of expertise in the field of test and inspection with a recent technology partnership. The new cooperation and development project has resulted in the launch of the OptiCon X-Line inspection system, which was unveiled at Productronica 2003. The new system combines high-performance AOI and X-ray inspection technology for the automated analysis of hidden solder joints.

The OptiCon X-Line, based on the popular OptiCon series from GÖPEL, provides automatic recognition of shorts and solder bridges as well as missing solder balls on BGA and μBGA devices. FEINFOCUS contributed to the development of the system with innovative X-ray tube technology that was implemented according to GÖPEL's specifications. The companies will publish joint technical papers and application findings through the use of the combined technologies.
