There are many X-ray inspection systems, both old and new, that are used today for the defect identification of electronic components and assemblies. However, the imaging capabilities these systems have can vary widely. Therefore, understanding the potential limitations in a specific X-ray system ensures that it can be successfully used for appropriate investigations, it is not utilized for applications it cannot see and can do this without compromising the analytical effectiveness.
This presentation will identify, and explain, the operational parameters of an X-ray inspection system that affect the image quality, the available magnification and image views they can achieve. From this, practical methods will be suggested to help improve the defect identification of commonly X-ray inspected components such as BGAs and QFNs.
