X-Ray PCB Inspection Services

Cirexx uses X-ray technology to inspect for solder defects and examine the connections between the ball and the pad on ball grid arrays (BGAs). We also use X-ray inspection as part of our comprehensive quality assurance/quality control process to ensure we are doing everything possible to meet or exceed customer expectations.


Overview of Cirexx’s X-Ray PCB Inspection Services

We only invest in the best, and our 3D X-ray technology is no exception. The Cougar EVO system allows for quick, reliable, and repeatable inspections and offers a low dose detector mode for sensitive components. In addition to its advanced features, the Cougar EVO has available laminography with micro3Dslice and FF CT software and an automatic void calculation with VoidInspect.

AOI vs. X-Ray PCB Inspection

Automated optical inspection (AOI) is a top-down, 3D axis machine inspection that looks at solder joint quality and component placement. AOI also inspects whether the board has met IPC class requirements. PCB X-ray inspection primarily inspects for solder defects and the quality of connections.

Applications for X-Ray PCB Inspection

X-ray inspection is used in PCB projects across all types of industries and applications, including:

The Impact of X-Ray Inspection on Lead Times

The lead time of a printed circuit board may extend depending on how much X-ray inspection is involved. Our engineers are happy to discuss the specifics of your project in order to provide you with an accurate estimate. Contact us today to get started.
