Getting to Know Your Designer
In this issue, we examine how fabs work with their design customers, educating them on the critical elements of fabrication needed to be successful, as well as the many tradeoffs involved. How well do you really know your customer? What makes for a closer, more synchronized working relationship?
In this issue, the biggest names in PCB manufacturing share their economic outlook for the upcoming year and beyond. As you will see, they were all bullish on our industry, but there was some apprehension as well. No one wants to get burned by another the supply chain disruption.

ViTrox's Cutting-Edge V510i 3D AOI Wins the 2023 Global Technology Award, Redefining Inspection ExcellenceNovember 23, 2023 | ViTrox
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
ViTrox, which aims to be the world’s most trusted technology company, is honoured to announce that our latest V510i Advanced 3D Optical Inspection (AOI) Solution for Advanced Packaging has been awarded a 2023 Global Technology Award, in the Inspection - AOI category, from Global SMT & Packaging. The award was announced during the award ceremony at Productronica in Munich, Germany, on November 14, 2023.
With the pioneer integration of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) technologies and extensive inspection capability, our V510i 3D AOI Solution for Advanced Packaging marks a significant shift in inspection for the semiconductor and SMT industry, especially for highly reflective die and components. One significant breakthrough technology is the Surface Defect Inspection (SDI) algorithm, which enables this V510i 3D AOI solution to offer extensive inspection coverage, including die placement, die coplanarity, die chip-off/crack, die polarity, surface defects on die (such as scratches and contamination), gold pad surfaces, foreign material, and distance measurement. Complemented by the lighting module and motorised z-height, measurements can also be extracted by the Smart Measurement feature, providing CMM-like capabilities.

By integrating A.I. features in our V510i 3D AOI, users can automate programming and buy-off processes, reducing the need for skilled manual labour and minimising human error risks. Our AI-powered smart programming for AOI provides intelligent and automated programming to minimise human skills dependency and rapidly improve programming time by up to 4 times. In addition, we also offer another A.I. feature – A.I. Assisted Defect Review (also known as A.I. ViTrox Verification Tool Solution) where users can also automate buy-off processes in repair stations. This groundbreaking technology ensures a remarkable accuracy rate of over 90%, offering customers an unrivalled confidence level in the inspection results. On top of our AOI being IPC-CFX-2591 QPL validated, this solution is also SECS/GEM ready.
“With the release of this cutting-edge technology, I am confident that we will help the customer to address their pain points when adapting to Industry 4.0. This award comes as full amazement and honour to us. I would like to take this opportunity to demonstrate my greatest gratitude to the jury for selecting our V510i 3D AOI for Advanced Packaging for this prestigious award. The greatest honour goes to the team who never gives up on innovating the latest technology to bring greater value to fulfil customers' needs and meet their expectations,” said Mr Wee Kah Khim, CEO of Board Inspection and Embedded Solutions (BIE).
Yamaha Robotics SMT Section has revealed performance-boosting upgrades for the YRi-V 3D AOI system, including faster board handling, multi-component alignment checking, and enhanced LED coplanarity measurement.
