AXI + AOI = AXOI, a formula for 100% optical inspection

This webinar recording discusses the use of a combined X-ray and AOI approach for IPC compliant inspection of solder joints on electronic assemblies. The webinar shows why X-ray inspection should be used for testing of all solder joints of an assembly, and not only for partially concealed solder joints. Furthermore, possibilities and limits of error detection will be shown by many image examples.
