Automated Optical Inspection Method for Light-Emitting Diode Defect Detection Using Unsupervised Generative Adversarial Neural Network

Many automated optical inspection (AOI) companies use supervised object detection networks to inspect items, a technique which expends tremendous time and energy to mark defectives. Therefore, we propose an AOI system which uses an unsupervised learning network as the base algorithm to simultaneously generate anomaly alerts and reduce labeling costs. This AOI system works by deploying the GANomaly neural network and ...

Streaming Machine Learning and Online Active Learning for Automated Visual Inspection

Quality control is a key activity performed by manufacturing companies to verify product conformance to the requirements and specifications. Standardized quality control ensures that all the products are evaluated under the same criteria. The decreased cost of sensors and connectivity enabled an increasing digitalization of manufacturing and provided greater data availability. Such data availability has spurred the development of artificial intelligence models, which ...

An Automatic Optical Inspection System for the Diagnosis of Printed Circuits Based on Neural Networks

The aim of this work is to define a procedure to develop diagnostic systems for Printed Circuit Boards, based on Automated Optical Inspection with low cost and easy adaptability to different features. A complete system to detect mounting defects in the circuits is presented in this paper. A low cost image acquisition system ...

Comparing Costs and ROI of AOI and AXI

PCB architectures have continued their steep trend toward greater complexities and higher component densities. For quality control managers and test technicians, the consequence is significant. Their ability to electrically test these products is compounded with each new generation. Probe access to high density boards loaded with micro BGAs using a conventional ...

Weird Resistor Color Code -- Hello there! In one SMPS, I noticed a blown resistor with the following color code: yellow (4) Violet(7) Gold(?) Gold Black. I'm not sure what the value is. The dimensions of the resistor are those of a conventional MF0207 metal film resistor. I assume it's a fusible resistor in series with the ferrite transformer's primary, with a TinySwitch TNY268 on the opposite side. What is the value of the primary resistor? I've read some articles like ...
