Automated Acoustic Inspection for IGBT Modules

05 January 2015

      High-power IGBT modules have long needed a non-destructive method to inspect for internal structural defects such as voids, non-bonds, delaminations and cracks. The best time for such inspection is after assembly but before encapsulation, which prevents rework. X-ray won’t find all of these defects, but the ultrasound of acoustic micro imaging systems [...]
