Small Form-Factor Vision System

May 11, 2006
The SmallFrEYE_PC vision system targets manufacturing lines for electronic devices and components.

The system's architecture supports multitasking and its modular software design lets various functional blocks be combined and used as needed. Software modules include part detection, pin 1 detection, package location, mark inspection/ opticalcharacter verification, 2D ball-grid array inspection, chip-scale packaging pad inspection, device-lead inspection, pattern recognition, package-surface inspection, ECC080 and ECC200 datamatrix decoding, 1D bar-code decoding, optical-character recognition, and general-purpose measurement tools. The system is configured with a FireWire camera/lens/lighting combination and can be outfitted with cards that support computer-controlled illumination, I/O, and networking.
