Microscopy Inspection

After component decapsulation, the final step in visual die verification is to test the part using ultra high-resolution metallurgical microscopes fitted with high-resolution digital cameras. SMT’s microscopes can provide image magnification to 2000x. Photos of verified die markings can be provided to customers in advance upon request.


Digital photos of the die taken during inspection capture the manufacturer's logo, core part number, and any additional relevant die markings that are present.
