comes to the manufacture or application of electronic parts and devices, many
industries seek to establish uniform standards, specifications, and processes,
then verify that what they’ve established works.
has proven an invaluable provider of Process Development/Verification services.
We’ve done so largely with our scanning acoustic
microscopy screening, but also with X-Ray
the industries we serve call on us at
one time or another for help with Process Development/Verification. And
virtually all electronic parts and devices are submitted to us for this purpose,
- PEMs (plastic encapsulated microcircuits)
such as TSSOPs, SOICs, PLCCs, MSOPs, PQFPs/TQFPs, CDIPs/PDIPs, BGAs/FBGAs, and SOTs,
- PCBs (printed circuit boards),
- hybrid devices,
- flip chips,
- medical implants, and
- automotive sensors.
scanning acoustic microscopy (C-SAM®) is beneficial in making sure that a soldering process
isn’t damaging parts like BGAs, which are most susceptible to this kind of
damage. We’ve found C-SAM equally effective in helping clients compare the
effects of alternative processes on the
internal makeup of a device.
of X-Ray inspection in Process Development/Verification depends on the part or
process up for review. Typically, we use X-Rays to evaluate solder balls on
standards we follow when using our C-SAM®
The X-Ray standards that apply include…

report that notes all defects discovered,
- a certificate of conformance, and
- a CD that includes all images
taken during the tests and/or the original X-Ray films.
