Abstract: The digital transformation with concepts like Industry 4.0, Smart Factory and the Internet of Things will change production, work processes and business models in electronics manufacturing radically and forever. It is all about connectivity, and the gathering and exchange of big data.

This paper will investigate how connected at-line x-ray systems can improve the production yield and lower production costs of the manufacturing process when connected to the production line via Automated X-Ray Inspection (AXI) or 3D Automated Optical Inspection (3D AOI). This paper will demonstrate the logic and benefits of SmartLink technology where at-line x-ray can compensate for the limitations of in-line inspection solutions.

Key Words: 

Industry 4.0, AXI, 3D AOI, at-line x-ray, SmartLoop
