Sub-micron resolutions can be achieved using Nanoscan 3D CT Scanning, creating intricate levels of detail on even the smallest samples. The possible scan resolution is dependent on the size and material of the part, but printed circuit boards (PCB) are a prime example where sub-micron resolution can be obtained. Nanoscan enables investigation of potential PCB manufacturing and assembly defects, including “cold” solder joints, integrated circuit bonding issues, or multilayer PCB interlaminar flaws.
