Olympus Solutions for Electronics
Electronics are getting smaller, and so are their components. Inspecting microcircuits, semiconductor wafers, and other electronics is challenging because even a small piece of debris can cause a malfunction.
Manufacturers use microscopes with high-quality optics to inspect soldered connections in circuits, the condition of wires in printed circuit boards, and to look for contaminants. In some applications, the roughness of the components used in a device is measured using noncontact laser confocal microscopes to ensure they meet strict standards.
