Planar computed tomography

Planar computed tomography is a special procedure of computed tomography for the high resolution X-ray inspection of large-scale flat components.

Planar computed tomography is employed for testing of assembled printed circuit boards (PCBs), semiconductor components in power electronics, or assemblies made of compound materials. It allows examination of selected two-dimensional layers to detect cracks, flaws, and delamination.
