The YTV M1m AOI system includes a 3 MP thin camera and Fusion lighting. Is said to have a smaller footprint and board handling system; can adapt to pre- or post-reflow inspection and various rework and data tracking scenarios. Programming is intuitive. With CAD data input, a complete recipe reportedly can be completed in less than an hour. Includes an offline programming option. Uses several image processing algorithms. Tools include real-time color, normalized gray scale correlation, pattern matching and binary "blob” analysis.
