Inspecting the Appearance of Bonding Wire

Measuring the Volume of Integrated Circuit Chipping After the Dicing Process Using a Digital Microscope

During the dicing process of integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing, amount of allowable roughness of wafer surface is carefully controlled. Amount of roughness is checked with a digital microscope, but the physical properties of IC chips can be challenging. The DSX1000 objective lenses offer high resolution at low magnification to reduce shading and flare, enabling inspectors to more easily see chipping during low-magnification observations.

Acquiring Clear Images and Accurate Dimension Measurements of a Laminated Ceramic Capacitor Using a Digital Microscope

Inspecting Glass Fiber Peeling in a Printed Wiring Board’s Glass Epoxy Substrate—Clear Images Are Essential for Quality Control

Inspection of resin peeling defects is critical as these defects can cause a completed PWB to have lower insulation and heat resistance, making them more susceptible to failure. PWBs are challenging to inspect with a microscope. The DSX1000 digital microscope has advanced telecentric optics and high-resolution objectives that offer an excellent depth of focus, which enable you to observe an etched PWB to investigate the cause of a defect.
