Abstract

The Regatta H* Interposer Automated Inspection Device (RHIAID) is a machine developed to replace the manual visual inspection process on the MCM and L3 modules in the server systems. By using a smart sensor, intelligent actuator robot and PC, a process and machine were developed that significantly reduced labor cost associated with inspection. The software package to control this machinery consisted of three separate pieces that when linked together made for a powerful solution for this manufacturing process.
