AOI's light irradiation includes two types of devices: white light and color light. White light uses 256 levels of grayscale, while color uses red, green, and blue light. The light shines on the surface of solder/component, and then reflects back to the lens, producing a three-dimensional display of a two-dimensional image to reflect the height and color difference of the solder/component. People see and recognize objects based on the amount of light reflected back, with most reflections being bright and less reflections being dark. The principle of AOI is the same as that of human judgment.
AOI has single lens and multiple lenses in terms of lens quantity, which is only a choice for technical solution implementation. It is difficult to say which method is necessarily good, because a single lens can also obtain good detection images through different angles of multiple light sources. Especially for lead-free welding, the surface is relatively rough, which can produce solder joints with different shapes, easily forming bubbles, and prone to the feature of one end of the part being tiltedAOI detection equipmentAdaptable hardware and algorithm updates have also been carried out.
Currently, PCB AOI detection algorithms can be roughly divided into three categories:
1. Design rule-based detection algorithm
2. Detection algorithm based on image processing
3. The combination of the above two
There are generally two types of logic for AOI reporting shortcomings: design specification (DRC) and motherboard (CAM reference) comparison.
AOI determines based on the parameters you set that reporting parameter violations is a disadvantage.
The main drawbacks of this type are * small line width, * small spacing, pinholes, and copper slag.
AOI compares the motherboard data learned from CAM data with the actual scanned images, and reports any defects that are not within the tolerance range.
The main drawbacks of this type are open circuits, short circuits, solder pads, and pinholes.
Integrate design specifications and motherboard comparison organically to report only the shortcomings you want to identify and minimize false points.
