READ ME FIRST

ADVANTIS
SQUARE PIXEL SUPPORT
The AdVantis machine now uses square pixels. This will require a machine recalibration if upgrading from ASA 1.3.0.

FIDUCIAL TEACH BY SHOW
The 650 vision system is NOT compatible with Fiducial Teach By Show.

FLIPCHIP CENTROID CALCULATION
When UPS+ software was first introduced, the flipchip placement location algorithm was changed such that the placement became based on the body center of component rather than based on the bump center (or feature center) of the solder bumps as it had been in OS/2 software. Therefore, when a customer moved an OS/2 product involving flipchips to a machine that was just upgraded to UPS+ or ASA 1.0.x, the components would be "misplaced" as compared with the OS/2 machine. Starting with UPS+ 2.4.x, or ASA 1.3.x, flipchips will be placed based on the feature center -- for those components that are placed at zero degree. The change was not implemented for other rotations until a later version of SM UPS+ software. The correction for other rotations has definitely been completed in UPS+ 2.6.4/ ASA 1.4.x.

Please use the following matrix to help determine how existing products needs to be adjusted when using asymmetric flipchips:



GEM
GEM is not supported in this version of software.

MACHINE CONFIGURATION
SPLIT HEAD INTRODUCTION
This release supports the control of one Head per UIMC3 card for the Genesis Platform. If upgrading a Genesis machine from an earlier version of UPS+, a cable may be required to facilitate the software upgrade. Please contact UIC Technical Support for details.


PATCH FIXES
The following customer patches are included in this release:
24406 - Mapping now supports the 650 series vision system.
24580 - Low Force now works properly for picking and placing.
24852 - Standard dipping forces (>= 150g) now drive to impact on the fluxer.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS


None

KNOWN ISSUES


BACKUP/RESTORE
Backup/Restore will not backup the Barcode Configuration in the Machine Configuration.

LOOK BEFORE PICK
LBP
Pattern/Chip-LBP in production looks for the pattern 180 degrees off.

Multiple Field of View is not supported.

MACHINE CONFIGURATION
The LTFA's configuration shows an incorrect leftmost slot.

The GSMxs nozzle changers that are not mounted must say "None" in the Machine configuration in order for the machine to zero.

PERFORMANCE SIMULATOR
The performance simulator does not support the wafer feeder.

POSITIONING SYSTEM
The default X,Y axis parameters for a dual head Advantis machine are incorrect.

PRODUCT EDITOR
The optimizer can show errors after optimizing a valid product with several wafers.

The optimizer will not gang pick from the wafer feeder.

When changing the board template in a product with circuit offsets, a "Local fiducial precedes fiducial find" error can occur.

Nozzles mounted on the machine or in the nozzle changer are not always recognized in the Order List.

VISION
630 VISION POWER UP HARDWARE IDENTIFIER
The hardware identifier for the 630 vision system does not support older 630 vision (Def 45713).

630 VISION DOES NOT SUPPORT DIGITAL CAMERAS
The 630 vision software does not support the Anticipate Acquire Type command used with digital cameras and that command should not be sent to 630 vision systems (Def 46093).

WINDOWS 2000 DISPLAY SETTINGS
Although generally not a problem, changing Windows 2000 display settings with UPS+ applications running is not recommended, especially with any video window applications.

See Video Image Settings in the documentation for recommended settings.

WAFER FEEDER
Learn die task 'FOV' answer "No" works incorrectly.

Ejector may prevent all row/columns from being seen by the vision camera.

When wafer feeder E-stop is sensed, a PTF E-stop message is seen.

Vision is not consisten from vision panel test to setup test.

Status message in Wafer Setup is not consistent with vision problems.

Barcode reader does not always work properly with the wafer feeder.

Optimizer places multiple die requirements in a single task block.

When the system finds a die with edge chipping and ink dot, an error recovery window is not required.

Management Information does not update wafer feeder data.

Learn reference die is not functioning properly.

The wafer feeder start light button is not turning on if the flipper was last used.

NEW FEATURES

ADVANTIS
SQUARE PIXEL SUPPORT

Moving to reposition the crosshairs in the center of the ROI causes the crosshairs to disappear. (Def 22538)
