Machine Vision Optimizing Electronics Production
Today, semiconductors cannot be manufactured without using machine vision. In fact, machine vision is an enabling technology that has made it possible to achieve the density featured in today's integrated circuits and permits cost-effective manufacturing of such circuits. Suppliers of electronic materials, active components, IC packages, passive components and finished electronic equipment all use machine vision to drive high quality production at lower costs.
The technology that serves as the basis of both 2-D and 3-D machine vision is becoming more powerful and even more useful in electronic assembly applications. Vision systems now offer even higher resolution, greater speed and better color properties. Lighting is more capable thanks to LED development which is making multi-directional and sequential lighting more cost effective on production lines.
