The Process Of PCB Inspection
All PCBs must be put through proper inspection channels to ensure there are no defects and flaws. Advanced techniques and equipment are utilized to ensure these objectives. Professionals trained in PCB inspection take charge once the PCB has been made. They put the printed circuit boards through manual and automatic inspection methods. Manual inspection involves checking the boards for any obvious flaws, missing components, and something that should not be there. Once this visual inspection is complete, the board is put through special equipment that detects defects in greater detail using advanced technologies.
With electronic components becoming smaller and copper traces appearing at micro level, it is not possible to check an electronic board only by manual visual inspection. Only a machine that can detect defects at extreme micro level can work. Your PCB will undergo through all such checks before it is released from the assembly line and shipped to you.
