Advances in X-Ray for Demanding Applications
Presenter: Keith Bryant, Chairman SMTA Europe
However, due to the solar and battery advances, where heat transfer is critical and voiding is a huge problem, we are also seeing an increasing amount of high-density and thick materials which need to be imaged and worse still, low-density materials in combination with high-density ones. In order to meet these most recent challenges and those in the future, there have been a number of key improvements to the vital components within x-ray systems, which will be covered in the presentation.
The choice of available technologies, however, means selecting the tube/detector combination, which is optimum for electronics inspection is no longer so clear-cut. For example, one configuration may provide certain benefits that are applicable for one area of electronics inspection, whilst being less valid for others. This presentation will look at both ends of the spectrum of demanding applications, low-power applications using LED's as a subject and high-power applications showcasing IGBTs.
