MIRTECís new ISIS Vision System.

20-05-10

ISIS is heralded as the industry’s first and only 15 Mega Pixel Digital Color Camera System. With this technology, MIRTEC has effectively leapfrogged ALL of our competitors. As this product becomes more mature, MIRTEC will integrate ISIS into all of our inspection systems. There is little doubt that this new technology will revolutionize the inspection industry by providing unprecedented speed and performance to the inspection process.

To give you an understanding of how fast and accurate this system performed at APEX, we programmed our demonstration board, with over 2500 regions of interest including 01005 devices, on both our 5 Mega Pixel MV-7xi and the MV-7xi System configured with ISIS. The same PCB took 32 seconds to inspect with the 5 Mega system and 5 seconds with ISIS. This represents nearly and 85% reduction in inspection time!

The time window is significant on many levels, firstly the better we see the area of interest the more accurate our analysis and reporting, secondly the spare time can be further utilized to implement alternative sensors such as lasers to highlight coplanarity, lifted leads, we can also look at the board for solder balls, scratches or other potential causes of concern. Last but not least speed itself as it is never acceptable to be the outside the required line throughput speed.

Developing our own cameras is a significant leap forward for Mirtec, as like the rest of the inspection industry our development roadmap had been shackled by the quality, availability and cost restraints of the usual camera supply companies. Now Mirtec is free of this restraint and our experienced development team are supplying us with camera technologies which give us a huge and unmatchable advantage over competitive offerings. Even if the off the shelf companies could keep up with our advancements it has been proven to be extremely expensive and not cost effective when implemented into the equipment. The coming months and years will see Mirtec able to offer unmatchable optical capabilities lifting the standards of optical inspection to unprecedented levels.
