Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) Characterization by Destructive Physical Analysis (DPA)
Click below to download this eBook
The best-known method to test the quality of printed circuit boards and their components is Destructive Physical Analysis (DPA), also sometimes referred to as Mechanical Cross Section Analysis.
This process yields a comprehensive quality assessment for workmanship on PCBAs, and involves both non-destructive and destructive inspections using high resolution microscopy.
Read this eBook to learn more about the steps of DPA on printed circuits boards and view examples of the types of defects that can diminish a board’s performance or, in extreme cases, lead to device failure.
