PCB X-Ray Inspection Services
If you need to inspect non-inspectable surfaces of PCBs including but limited to BGAs, QFNs. LGAs and hole fill of connectors then BEST can be your resource for X-RAY inspection services.
Our trained staff, having many years of experience and IPC credentials in 610 is the resource you want interpreting the x-ray results. The BEST technicians can manipulate the X-ray and provide explanation and annotations on their finding to whatever class you are building the assembly to.
Not only do BEST technicians inspect your PCB using their skills but they have very modern equipment at their disposal. BEST has a Nikon X-160 x-ray system which features a high resolution (1 micron) high magnification (100X to 36.000X) capability. In addition the system allows us to calculate important criteria for BGAs, hole fill on plated throughholes, void percentages on bottom terminated components as well as other criterion. In addition the system allows us to create high intensity x-ray image JPEGS and MPEG movies as well as create customizable pass/fail criteria and send you a report by location of the x-ray image based on those criteria.
Where we can be of real benefit is on repeatable work where we can set up the first “golden” board and then run subsequent boards through an automatic inspection routine. A report will then be generated to measure the solder fillets based on the process window drawn around each of the joints. This PLUS the skilled operators running the machines will allow you to have a high confidence level with regards to the outgoing quality level of your boards. Very crisp image using a 1.45Mpixel 12bit camera substantiate the findings.
