X-ray image: Printed circuit board with standard components
There are several different error sources in printed circuit boards which can be found with digital x-ray inspection: Misaligned layers of multilayer PCBs, bad solder connections and disrupted conducting paths are only three examples.
Possibilities of inspection: incorrect position of conductor paths / faulty soldering joints / point of breaks in the printed circuit board / incomplete assembly

The electric bulb is a typical example for non-destructive testing (NDT). If it is opened, it will immediately be useless. Even if a quality assurance with digital x-ray inspection is not always necessary during the production, it is possible to analyze and evaluate defects in the research & development or in the production process.
