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 ...

█  Printed Circuit Board Assembly & PCB Design Forum

Interested in pin-in-paste process with standard ROHS connectors -- Hi. Alpha metals recently informed us of: Alpha OM-565 low temp solder which they note is popular with pin-in-paste process of through hole parts so that we can solder inside of our SMT oven (1809EXL). We commonly use ROHS DSUB connectors (9 to 78 pins) for our PCBAs. Any comments on if such (standard) through hole connectors can support the 175 peak temp required to melt this solder paste ? We will source a jar and attempt to use but ideally prefer to use our existing ROHS inventory of through hole parts but without deforming the connectors. Thanks.
