ScanINSPECT BPI provides a fast, simple and user-friendly alternative to inaccurate and time-consuming manual inspection methods or expensive, yet slow, measurement systems.

ScanINSPECT BPI uses an intuitive process flow interface integrated with a high resolution, Color, 2-D image-processing unit. This combination allows 100% inspection of ball or bump placement on a wide variety of substrates and device types including FR4, Ceramic, Wafer, Flip chip, BGA, CSP, etc. The system can be used either pre or post reflow.

How Does ScanINSPECT BPI Work?

ScanINSPECT’s integration within the production environment provides inspection of ball or bump:

  •  Presence/Absence
  •  Size
  •  Position

Each device or substrate is placed into ScanINSPECT for 100% inspection. The balls or bumps are inspected and any errors are displayed on the screen. The system is barcode reader compatible.

Fast & Simple Programming

ScanINSPECT BPI is quickly programmed from a golden part in a few minutes. Corrections to the golden part can be quickly and easily made, if necessary.

Increased Yield & Improved Overall Equipment Efficiency

ScanINSPECT Ball Placement Inspection (BPI) is a powerful 100% inspection process control tool which increases product yield by ensuring accurate ball or bump placement. Missing balls or bumps can result in reduced yield, lost production time and extensive rework.

Missing or misplaced balls or bumps are now automatically detected. Problems are identified and eliminated before substrates or devices are reflowed, permitting quick and easy rework.



SScanINSPECT BPI set up is fast and easy. In production, each device or substrate is placed on the table, shuttled in, automatically aligned and checked for accuracy with a PASS or FAIL inspection in seconds.



  •  Mandatory: 100% automatic inspection of ball or bump placement, pre and/or post reflow.
  •  Security: Confirm ball/bump absence / presence.
  •  Traceability: Full inspection documentation of every ball down to the device serial number & lot number level.
  •  Necessity: Detect errors before reflow permitting easy rework.
