Increased efficiency with infrared thermography

Increased efficiency with infrared thermography
Since the arrival of the personal computer, the electronics market has been subject to a constant, overarching pressure from end-users to miniaturise components while maximising performance. However, meeting these twin demands presents a challenge: how does one accurately test tiny components for both product faults and overall quality control when most of these electronics are too small for conventional diagnostic tools?
