The first part focuses on the application of AOI and AVI and identifies all kinds of defects and boards which they can inspect. The second part compares and contrasts the hardware and software of AOI and AVI machines. The third part studies the finding of defects under the application and the machine issues related to AOI and AVI. The fourth part examines the possibilities in combining AOI and AVI. The fifth part summarizes the key elements that caused the pros and cons of the universal machine (or so-called combined machine).
