The Regatta H* Interposer Automated Inspection Device (RHIAID) is a machine developed to replace the visual inspection test process on the MCM and L3 modules in the Regatta H server system with an automated one. By replacing the visual inspection process of the MCM and L3 modules in this system with an automated one, IBM* will realize a significant labor cost savings. An additional savings on top of the labor costs could be realized due to less defective component escapes (thus, less service replacement costs on damaged components.) In addition to these cost savings, the test process will be faster and more consistent than the current one.
