Abstract:

An inspection workstation data entry method is used by electronic assembly inspector to substantially increase throughput and eliminate data entry errors. The method utilizes a sonic digitizer cursor and x-y linear microphones to record unique registration data and defect data. The inspector, without manual intervention for data entry, positions the assembly in a workarea, records a registration hole location and defect locations along with identifying information or processing requirements. The method minimizes errors due to manual data entry and eliminates the need for on-hand reference materials. Patents
