Fast and Reliable Inspection of Printed Circuit Boards with Digital Microscopy

Digital microscopy has been used more and more for inspection, quality control and assurance (QC/QA), failure analysis (FA), and research and development (R&D) in the microelectronics industry, especially for printed circuit boards (PCBs). Digital microscopes are practical to use and allow an efficient workflow for inspection. Here the advantages of the following digital microscope features are discussed: i) rapid, easy tilting and rotation to view the sample from different perspectives, ii) integrated illumination for versatile contrast, iii) high dynamic range (HDR) imaging, and iv) large mosaic overview of the sample.

Digital microscopes have no eyepieces and the image is observed directly on a monitor. With the Leica DVM6 digital microscope, for example, users can quickly record high quality, reliable image data and easily make measurements and analysis during inspection of microelectronic parts, such as PCBs. Efficient inspection, QC/QA, FA, and R&D of microelectronics is achieved.
