  • Easy to use, dynamic image enhancing filters, e.g. eHDR

Software

  • eHDR-Inspect
  • Improved, user friendly FGUI
  • Multi Area Void Calculation
  • Extended BGA Inspection
  • Extended ADR

System Highlights

The small-sized, affordable Cougar EVO SMT utilizes the combined power of several YXLON innovations – FeinFocus X-ray tube technology, High Power Target technology, and a finely calibrated, long-life flat-panel detector. The assortment of trays ensures that it can generate 2D and 3D images in extremely high resolution.

In addition to imaging excellence, you can look forward to simple, user-friendly controls and YXLON FGUI – FeinFocus Graphical User Interface – software, not to mention the myriad benefits of comprehensive automation. One-click solutions make manual inspections effortless, while Easy Teach-In makes it simple to program the automated procedures that guide the operator swiftly through inspections – and deliver repeatable and reliable results.

Cougar EVO SMT can be upgraded for CT with the optional microCT module. This enables CT for industrial quality assurance, with in-depth 3D examination of inspection items via virtual cross sections and layers. With its user-friendly YXLON QuickScan® module, it delivers 3D images and virtual slices within a minute.

eHDR-Inspect
Highest product quality is a major competitive advantage in electronics. Developed especially for the electronics market, our eHDR filter highlights critical structures with just one click. It detects even the slightest variances in grayscale and no defect will be missed, thanks to our software and the enhanced 16-bit grayscale values. This is a real “game changer” as it allows you to easily see faults that were invisible before.

New user friendly FGUI and larger monitor
With the new and improved software it is easier to observe and change all X-ray parameters at the same time. Also, the monitor is much bigger so that both the X-ray image and the popular overview image are available in higher detail.

Multi Area Void Calculation (MAVC)
Today’s soldering connections are getting more and more complex. QFNs and other bottom terminated devices can only be inspected using X-ray. Not using X-ray leads to a high risk of missing solder joints or large areas of voiding which could result in product failures. MAVC helps detect voids in complex soldering designs. With just four parameters to adjust, setup is quick, simple, and cost-efficient. Results are consistent, repeatable and accurate.
