Today‘s printed circuit boards (PCBs) are becoming more complex with smaller and more densely compact components. By integrating artificial intelligence (AI), automated optical inspection (AOI) is able to expand its inspection capabilities through machine learning which facilitates increased yield, improves fabrication operations and processes, and reduces manual operations. Compared with traditional AOI inspection, it has higher efficiency and greater accuracy.
To process images and signals quickly and accurately, the embedded system with high-performance Intel® Core™ processor and support of Intel® OpenVINO™ toolkit is required. In addition, it must integrate real-time vision I/O to connect triggers, optical sensors and LED lighting control and support GigE Vision interfaces for complete the online inspection.
