AOI System Application B.jpgFor high-tech electronic products that comprise micro components, manual visual inspections are no longer acceptable for defect detection. Consider a post-sawing LED wafer with up to 100 grain-sized dies; relying on human inspectors to detect defects just wouldn't cut it. Consequently, automatic optical inspection (AOI) systems with robotic applications have been widely adopted for wafer inspection to increase assembly reliability, reduce personnel costs, improve quality and enhance competitiveness.


Although performance of a traditional CPU-based hardware computing AOI system exceeds that of a GPU cluster-based software solution, the development and maintenance costs are substantially higher. A CPU-based hardware solution requires multiple PCs to process high-resolution image data from a single camera, such as Advantech's ASMB-823 with HPC-7320 solution is capable of processing the same amount of data using only one PC and one GPU cluster. Advantech's ASMB-823 with HPC-7320 system supports up to two 225W TDP GPU cards, accelerating visual computing for complex applications and yielding a high throughput of high-resolution data. To ensure resolution data. TO ensure reliable parallel computing performance, the system is equipped with a 700W single or redundant power supply. The system also features two 8-cm and one 6-cm high-performance cooling fans to ensure thermal stability during AOI inspection.


  • High throughput of high-resolution image data
  • Multiple image inspections for detection accuracy
  • Competitive, cost-effecting performance
  • Compact built-in system

In the field of hi-tech manufacturing, speed and precision determine competitiveness. Because human inspectors cannot conduct precise and stringent assessments with quantifiable repeatability, machine vision and motion control systems are essential to ensure consistent quality and operational efficiency. Advantech's industrial GPU server solution is designed to maximize convenience, competiveness, and market serviceability, and can be used to boost GPUs in a PC cluster system or integrated with hybrid system hardware. The benefits of this solution include a faster time-to-market, reduced development costs, high flexibility, and low maintenance costs, enhancing production efficiency for quality-focused manufacturers.
