MINNEAPOLIS — CyberOptics® Corporation recently won a 2019 Global Technology Award for a multi-functional inspection and metrology system that performs automated optical inspection (AOI), solder paste inspection (SPI), and fast, accurate coordinate measurements. Awarded in the category of Inspection – AOI, the CyberOptics SQ3000™ Inspection and Metrology System is described by the manufacturer as “an all-in-one system that can identify critical defects and measure critical parameters”. These capabilities enable it to provide superior process control for effective yield management, CyberOptics said in a press release.
The SQ3000 is reported to deliver highly accurate coordinate measurements faster than a traditional coordinate measurement machine (CMM)—in seconds, rather than hours. The in-line CMM includes an extensive software suite for metrology-grade measurement on all critical points, the company said.
“We are thrilled to receive our 16th award for Multi-Reflection Suppression (MRS)-enabled systems,” said Subodh Kulkarni, Ph.D., president and CEO, CyberOptics Corporation, in the release. “In addition to providing superior inspection and metrology performance, we are providing our customers the flexibility to use the SQ3000 platform for various applications for advanced process control and effective yield management.”
CyberOptics Corporation (www.cyberoptics.com) is a global developer and manufacturer of high-precision 3D sensing technology for inspection and metrology. The company’s sensors are used for inspection and metrology in the surface mount technology (SMT) and semiconductor capital equipment markets to significantly improve yields and productivity.
According to the manufacturer, the SQ3000 offers a combination of high accuracy, high resolution, and high speed with MRS sensor technology that meticulously identifies and rejects reflections caused by shiny components and surfaces. Because effective suppression of multiple reflections is critical for highly accurate measurement, the proprietary MRS technology is “an ideal solution for a wide range of applications with exacting requirements,” the company said.
The Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly.
