Agilent launches new AOI
Agilent has introduced the Agilent Medalist SJ50 Series 3 Automated Optical Inspection system (AOI).
The new SJ50 Series 3 expands on the existing SJ50 product line, providing optical performance. It improves ease of use, throughput, component location and supportability, as well as enabling manufacturers to cope with emerging technologies, such as 01005 components. These enhancements will allow manufacturers to keep up with ever-increasing line rates with better capability and resolution. In addition to helping manufacturers achieve a better bottom line through faster time-to-market and cost efficiency, the SJ50 Series 3 offers further enhancements to help manufacturers address emerging technical challenges. For instance, low-contrast components have presented inspection issues industrywide. The algorithms included in the SJ50 Series 3 system are designed to bring greater image clarity to low-contrast components, providing the end-user with better defect analysis capabilities. The image clarity results in lower false-call rates and improved defect detection.
