X-Ray Inspection 

What is an X-Ray Inspection?

In the intricate world of printed circuit boards (PCBs), ensuring the quality and integrity of components is paramount. The X-Ray technique helps to provide unparalleled insight into the hidden realms of electronic connections. X-Ray provides an answer where you cannot optically see the solder connections, and gives PCB Manufacturers a method to examine the internal structures of PCBs without compromising their integrity.

Why is X-Ray inspection used? 

X-ray inspection is instrumental in verifying the accurate placement of components, especially those with small form factors or intricate designs. This ensures that each solder joint is precisely where it should be, minimizing the risk of misalignments or defects. It allows manufacturers to detect any voids or inconsistencies that might affect the overall performance of the board. In multi-layer PCBs, ensuring proper layer-to-layer registration is crucial. X-ray inspection allows manufacturers to scrutinise the alignment of different layers, confirming that the vias and connections are accurately established. For PCBs with integrated circuits and semiconductor components, wire bonding is a critical process, X-ray inspection assists in detecting issues such as bond wire misalignment, bridging, or even wire breakage, ensuring the functionality and longevity of the integrated circuits.
