Electronics inspection

The inspection of electronic components has become a crucial necessity with the increased complexity of PCBs and electronic circuitry in modern, highly technical consumer and industrial products.


X-ray inspection has an important role to play in the quality control and failure analysis of electronic systems and components, as it allows manufacturers to look "inside" their products, thus negating the need for costly destructive inspection techniques.


X-ray inspection in the electronics industry covers the complete manufacturing process, allowing manufacturers to track readily the quality of their products through the production line. This allows total assurance that the final product is of the highest quality, so that, when finally shipped, it reaches customers in perfect working order.

Some other examples of manufacturing stages of electronic systems that can be inspected with X-rays are:

  • BGAs (ball grid arrays)
  • Void and solder analysis
  • Backplane inspection
  • Semiconductor back-end inspection
  • Semiconductor wafer inspection
  • Verification of presence, location and orientation of components inspection
