Abstract

Digital Computed Tomography, or CT Scanning, has advanced in equipment and techniques to such an extent that it has now become the method of choicein many applications where workmanship, fabrication, and component defects are difficult and sometimes otherwise impossible to find.

This presentation will discuss the current state of the technology (hardware as well as software); some of the basic physics underlying the methodology; and relative strengths and weaknesses of CT Scanning versus other methods, from the standpoint of results as well as cost. Numerous examples will be shown, with an emphasis on PCBA and PCBF failure analysis and defect detection.
